Spider Scream

I was letting Chloe and Molly out into our backyard this evening after we got back from dinner at the Black-Eyed Pea. Just as I’d opened the door and was about to walk out onto our porch, I saw it. It was huge, and it was dangling right in front of my face. On a web. I let out my “spider scream” – louder than most of my spider screams too I must add, as this spider was quite large and so thus warranted extra volume. Adrenaline started rushing through my veins as I hurriedly jumped back, FAR back, into the kitchen. I get shivers down my spine just thinking how close I came to that thing being ON me. And on my face, no less. *shudder*

Greg heard my scream from upstairs and I think I scared him. He thought something serious had happened, like an eagle had swooped down on one of the dogs or something. Sorry Greggors! Then he saved the day by getting rid of the spider. He didn’t kill it though; just knocked it and its web into the backyard. So it can come back to haunt me tomorrow. I hate spiders.

    i remember when i was about 22 and living with my parents again (hehe) anyway, my dad and I were standing by the front desk of the motel they owned and a wee itty bitty spider came down from the ceiling right in front of my face. i let out a loud scream and it really startled my dad. but he thought something terrible had happened to make me scream like that and when he realized that it was just a little spider he was really mad at me for scaring him over such a trivil thing. he lectured me and said “dont you ever do that again.” well i dont remember doing it again with him near. but i still cant help screaming when i see a spider close by on a web. and cindy loves to scare me by yelling out “MOM WATCH OUT THERES A SPIDER BY YOUR HEAD!” i nearly wet my pants tonight when she did it. LOL
