It was nice knowing all of you...

Today will be my last day on earth.

Only moments ago I was dutifully and sweeping cob-webs off the side of the cottage (I did good dad!).

Now I am doomed to a fate worse than
death
.... it is death, so there is nothing worse.

Unbeknownst to me, I happened to destroy one particular intricate, painstakingly designed, and specially crafted cobweb.........


..... That belonged to her.

She may not look big at first glance, but check out the nail next to her. It's a carpentry nail, not one of those itty bitty hang-a-picture sort.

Gulp.

I am certain that she is currently plotting her revenge.

She will execute her attack in the dead of night (pun intended) as I sleep soundly.

I will wake up, unable to move, boundin a silk cocoon. I will be poisoned and eventually eaten.

It's been great knowing you.

Gotta run.

It was chunky..... Like a tarantula. When I went back an hour later, it was gone! I will have a fricken' heart attack if I ever see one of those INSIDE the cottage!!!!!!

Stacey Pomerleau said...

I certainly will!!!!

Take a dagger to bed with you - it worked for Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit :-)

I think that if this spider spoke to me and reassured me..... then we could be friends..... Or I'd be insane.

:o)

Could you imagine how big this spider would be to a Hobbit?! Eeeeek!

I like spiders but only while I'm awake. When I sleep they must go do what spiders do outside.

You still alive? Is it too late to ask you to leave me your trailer?

Jill said...

I'm pretty sure I'd be having to take up residency in another state if I saw that thing anywhere near me. Yikes!

Black Knight said...

I never kill the spiders that I find at home but ... I move them to the garden.

Stacey Pomerleau said...

Someone should tell the spiders that they are not welcome inside!!!

Stacey Pomerleau said...

Had to sell my soul, and that first born thing........ But I'm alive.

For future reference, I'll put you down for the Airstream ;)

Stacey Pomerleau said...

That's why I'm coming to live with you!!!!!

Stacey Pomerleau said...

Would you try to move this one? I can't fathom it. Funny thing is, if I was at a pet store I'd hold a tarantula no problem. Something changes when animals are in their natural habitat.

:o
