Attack by spider

Today has not been a good day. And it’s not even lunchtime yet. On the plus side, I do manage to provide amusement to my mum :/

I was attacked by a giant spider.

Well, OK, not GIANT. Quite large. Medium. Alright, it was a money spider! But I still hate them.

See, here’s what I happened. I had just come downstairs from a nice, cold shower, just in my towel and being the vain person that I am, I thought I’d check myself out in the mirror. Nothing seemed out of ordinary and I stood there, doing the usual girly, “Oh God, why don’t I look like Angelina Jolie?” Especially today as my sunburn is starting to get to that lovely peely stage. VERY ATTRACTIVE. But then I felt something… something itchy on my neck. I looked down… And there it was. Crawling up onto my chin.

The spider.

I’m not normally a big screamer but in this case, it was necessary. Squealing like a little girl I smacked myself in the face to try and get it off me. This was a bad move as too much activity in a towel usually causes it to come off. Luckily, I caught it before my mum and brother came running into the hallway to see what was going on.

“What’s happened?”

“There was a spider on my face and I nearly dropped my towel!”


Now, I’m not sure why my mum found this so funny, she’s even more terrified of them than me! I suppose she likes my suffering. The worst part however, was that I couldn’t see where the spider had gone. Now this scares me more than knowing where they are. I get paranoid that they have run off to lay eggs and make hundreds and hundreds of new baby spiders that will come and take revenge on me when I sleep.

Not having much choice, I went into my bedroom to get dressed. I look down. Da fuck!? The spider is still on me, this time dangling off my hand!!! :O I palm strike my door frame, aiming to squish it and when I look down, sure enough, the spider is gone, but there is NO expected mark of squished spider on either me or the door frame. So I’m back to where I started. I don’t think I can go to sleep tonight. I have now tried to kill the spider twice.

It will be after revenge.

  1. Aw, this was a really nice post. In thought I wish to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and in no way appear to get one thing done.

  2. I feel your pain! If there is a spider in the house, it will make its life mission to find me and send me into fits of hysterics! Once I was on the phone to the boyfriend, and a huntsman about the size of my palm crawled across my lap. Needless to say, I dropped the phone and started screaming, I think my poor boyfriend thought I was getting murdered! What freaked me out even more is it came from my bed……I don’t think I slept very well that night 😛

    • Haha, finding spiders in your bed is the worst!!! It makes me remember that myth that apparently you eat 4 spiders in your sleep every year. Euuurgh, they are nasty little things D:

      • Yeah I think I’ve read that fact too, it makes me want to tape my mouth shut when I sleep 😛 Thanks for stopping by my blog and subscribing lovely! 🙂
