So what would you do...

...if you were getting dressed before dawn, and it's so dark it takes you a moment to realize that what you are seeing is a spider run up your shirt towards your neck?

Attempt to remain calm, standing as still as possible, reach around, to find an object to flick the spider off. If not, attempt to swiftly remove shirt, and if all else fails, attempt to squish the spider with a violent slam, though this is the least desirable option since if it fails, it gives the spider the chance to possibly inject its fatal venom into one's bloodstream!

That at least, would be my approach.

I don't know, what did you do?

I'd probably scream like a manly man.

Oh!

We had a problem with spiders in our apartment for a long time. Then the managers had people come spray the complex (kind of sad, actually), and we haven't seen any for quite a while.

Rather fortunate, because one of their favorite places to build their webs was the bathtub. Don't ask me why. I still do a quick spider scan before showers, before I take off my glasses. (rolls eyes)

I would scream like a ninny, then after I (hopefully) killed it, I would go through the house with a fine-tooth comb hoping to find any others to deal with, then I would begin to have trouble sleeping each night and would have to resort to sleeping pills, then I would become slightly sleep-deprived and thus mentally unstable, and would close the curtains and lock the front door all the time, and my eyes would start automatically darting back and forth furtively as I constantly scanned for sign of my enemy, and then I would start leaving comments on blogs.

Depending on what type of spider it was.I would knock it off and stop it.Or just have the big one.

Scream bloody murder and probably say a few words that aren't fit for young ears. O.o *shudders*

Scream like the little girl that I am, slap at it, run and jump around,
possibly cry... OK, probably cry. I'm real mature when it comes to
spiders. ;)

Son3 said...

Ah, the old "Morning Breath Defense" trick...

Oooh, Mariah -- I used to do the same exact thing (about the glasses, I mean). One time I saw a dark mass which I thought was threads/hair/fuzz or something inanimate stuck to the shower wall, and I stupidly squinted and leaned in closely to examine. It was a big ugly garden spider, and boy was I sorry I'd stuck my face (sans glasses, hence the problem in the first place) so close to such an ugly brute. *shudders*

Lydia: You're not the only one who screams. *nods solemnly* Just ask my brother how his sister reacts when green beetles attack!

Spencer: HAH! Love the pun too btw. ;-)

Son3: ROTFLOL!!!
