I went to run a bath last night, and someone had left a bucket in there. I went to take it out, and in the corner of eye, noticed something black in there, about the size of a tennis ball. My first thought was that someone had left a wad of hair in it, but then it MOVED! Eeeeeep! I have never dropped anything as fast as that bucket! Thankfully it landed back into the bath because inside it, was the biggest spider I have ever seen in my entire life! It had legs as thick and as long as pencils* and hairier than my legs in winter**! Imagine I had dropped it on the floor..?? It doesn't even bear thinking about..
Thankfully, there was someone else in the house who wasn't afraid of squishing it (there's no way I would have allowed them to simply throw it out of a window, in case it came back in, or even worse, made huge spider babies!) otherwise I would still be unwashed***! Phew!
Following the discussion about Arabic women on Olivia's blog, here's something to make you giggle on this dreary Friday:
* I may be exaggerating slightly, but not by much, 'cos it was HUUUGE!
** No exaggeration here
*** Okay, that's another exaggeration, as there's another shower, but you know what I mean
