A Gross Thing Happened One Morning…

The other morning I noticed a giant spider on our curtains.

Usually I ignore spiders provided they stay away from me. But this one was the size of a quarter and it couldn’t live.

My son and Cosmo, the kitten, were playing nearby so I quickly ran upstairs, grabbed my husband’s shoe in one hand, while still Cheese Whiz toast in the other, and squished it.

Before I could get something to pick up the carcass, Cosmo started to eat it, which promptly made me loose my appetite.

Telling the kitten that was gross, I headed back upstairs to throw my toast out.
Then I heard a voice.


I looked down and there was the babe holding something dark with legs.

I thanked him, took the spider, which I hoped was really dead, and threw it out.
I may not be able to eat Cheese Whiz again.

Hmmm...I suppose I shouldn't tell you all the gross things my dog has eaten...the spider might not seem so bad!

Sorry about the Cheese Whiz and that E decided to take it away from Cosmo so you had to touch it. Yuck!

UGH!!! I am not a fan of spiders at all and I simply bash them to pieces with whatever heavy object I can find.

Oh by the way, I agree...Les Mis is my absolute fave as well. EVER!!! I cry like a baby everytime, the music alone makes me cry and and there will never be another show as good.

Ok, I can breathe now...

Lots of yummy love,

I hate spiders too. Haven't you noticed that spiders are bigger than they were years ago? WHY?????
