Spiders & A Contest

I’m getting a divorce! Hubby and I had a good 31 years, but the gift he left on my keyboard this morning wiped all that away!!!! Okay…I’m not leaving him. But dad blast it!!! Spiders. What can I say? I’m a perfectly rational human being—unless I see a spider. Then, I turn into a screaming lunatic. I’ve faced down snakes, cranky toddlers and the fear of loosing someone I love. But when it comes to the creep crawly little  eight legged critters, I yell for reinforcements, i.e., my hubby. So, he knows very well about my irrational fear of spiders. But, we’re talking about my husband here. He’s the guy who loves to wind me up.

So, the other morning, I grab my coffee from my kitchen, head into my study to start working on my next book—and guess what I found sitting on my keyboard? THIS! A big, hairy spider! I screamed! My coffee went flying. And I tore out of the room. Then I hear it. Hubby’s laugh. Suddenly, the light goes on. Hubby is to blame. He’s laughing so hard, he’s almost crying. I could have killed him!

 

Slowly, I crept back into the study. The spider hadn’t moved. Hubby assured me through his laughter that it was already dead. He’d found it outside. I made him take it outside, then take a picture of it for something for scale to show how big it was. Look at the size of it!

Well, in the end, I decided not to divorce my husband, but he knows he’s skating on thin ice for a while.

One thought on “Spiders & A Contest

  1. Leaving a spider – dead or alive – on my keyboard is definitely grounds for death! I cannot even get close enough to kill one. My neighbors have learned over the years, if they hear me screaming bloody murder, to bring something to kill a spider with. A flame thrower would be nice or just set my house on fire. Whatever works best!
