Silly Saturday

Happy Saturday! 

This looks like me when I see a spider.  I am terrified of them!

I got up in the middle of the night to go pee and I didn't bother to put my glasses on.  When I went into the bathroom, there was a spider in the bathtub.  The thing is, it was so big I could actually SEE it WITHOUT my glasses on!  And yes, I am totally blind without them.

I ran into the bedroom and told my husband to get up and dispose of the unwanted visitor using our bathtub.  He walks into the bathroom and he says, "Wow! He's a big'un.  I'm gonna catch him!"

So, he proceeds to catch this thing in a plastic container. My husband poked holes in the top of the lid  and he even went as far as to read up on how to take care of this thing. He would put drops of water into it for him to drink and fed it bugs he found in the yard.
The thing actually GREW in the two weeks it lived as our "pet" because he relocated it to another plastic container. 

He joked with me stating that he took such good care of this one that we should get a tarantula. I very promptly told him to go for it, but I hope he and it would be very happy together because I wouldn't live with it!

For size comparisons.

He already came across a remote controlled tarantula that he scared me with.  He thought it was the funniest thing ever.  The stupid thing has tiny hairs on it and everything! When its on and moving, the legs even move like a real spider! Creeps me out just looking at it!


  1. I would have peed on the floor had I seen that monster!! WoW.

    1. I'm just glad I didn't have my glasses on to actually SEE him. I probably would have screamed my stupid head off!

  4. Hi! I'm your newest follower from the Make My Saturday Sweet Blog Hop and that thing is a monster. I've been finding some huge ones in my house over the last few weeks also.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I am following you now!

      I have a picture I took of this monster next to a penny for size comparison. I am going to see if I still have it and post it.

      My recliner is right next to my front window and I love to sit there with my laptop in my lap. Well, I was playing some World of Warcraft and I happen to look over and there was a huge one walking down the side of the wall, not more than 20 inches from my face. I could tell the thing was only holding on by its web and it was desperately flaring its huge legs around trying to grab a hold of something. So, you can imagine as I look over and see this monster flaying around inches from my face trying to take hold, I screamed and jumped up. How I had the composure to not throw my laptop across the living room is beyond me!
