THE GUEST


TODAY MY 9 YEAR OLD SON CAME RUNNING INTO THE HOUSE AND SAYS TO ME MOMA THERE IS A BIG SPIDER IN MY TOY BOX ON THE PORCH.. JUST RECENTLY MOVING INTO A OLD HOME IN GEORGIA WE HAD SOME TOYS PLACED OUTSIDE WAITING TO COME INSIDE THE HOUSE TO TAKE THEIR RIGHT FUL PLACE AMONG THEIR OTHER LIL TOY FRIENDS…

BEING ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED OF SPIDERS BUT YET THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS HOME BESIDES MY TWO CHILDREN WHO ARE 9 AND 7  I KNEW THAT I MUST NOT LOOK LIKE WIMP INFRONT OF MY 9 YEAR OLD SON WHO THINKS THAT MOST INSECTS ARE COOL..

SO I OPEN THE DOOR AND STEP OUT ONTO THE PORCH PAST SOME OF THE TOTES OF TOYS THAT ARE SITTING PILED IN ONE CORNER OF THE PORCH.SO I ASK MY SON OK WHERE IS THIS GIANT SPIDER HMMMMMM.. HE SAYS RIGHT THERE AND POINTS HIS LITTLE  FINGER TO A TOTE WITH NO LID AND SMALL ACTION FIGUES AND CARS … SO I LEAN DOWN TO HAVE A CLOSER LOOK AND SEE NOTHING BUT TOYS.. AND AGAIN I ASK HIM WHERE AT SON I DONT SEE IT… AND AGAIN IN RATHER FRUSTRATED TONESS HE SAYSSSSSSSSSS AND POINTS AGAIN RIGHTTTTTTTTTTT THERE MOM CANT U SEE IT? LOOK DOWN RIGHT THERE.. SO I SAY TO HIM OK WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE.. AND I GRAB THE CAN OF RAID OFF THE TABLE THAT MY HUSBAND HAD BEEN USING THE DAY BEFORE FOR A FAMILY OF WASPS THAT GLADLY MADE THEIR HOME IN THE CEILING FAN UP ABOVE OUR HEADS .. AFTER GRABBING THE CAN OF RAID AND THE ALUMINUM BASEBALL BAT LEANING  AGAINST THE WALL I AM NOW READY TO BATTLE AGAINST THIS GIANT SPIDER…

ONCE AGAIN I AM LEANING DOWN IN THIS BOX OF TOYS AND  I GENTLY START MOVING THE TOYS WITH THE END OF THE BASEBALL BAT AND I ASK MY  SON ARE YOU SURE YOU SEEN A SPIDER IN THIS TOTE OF TOYS?  HE SAYS YES MOM GEEZEEEEEE ITS RIGHT THERE OPEN YOUR EYES.. SO I LOOK CLOSER AND I FINALLY SEE THE GIGANTIC SPIDER MY SON TOLD ME WAS THERE… IT WAS BOUT THE SIZE OF A HALF DOLLAR AND BLACK.. EWWWWWW AND I SHIVERED AT THE SIGHT OF IT.. SO I GRAB THE RAID CAN I BEGIN TO SPRAY THE MANACING UNWANTED BUGGGGGGGG. AND NOTHING COMES OUT OF THE CAN .. AND IM THINKING TO MYSELF WHATTTTTTTTTTT.. WHERE IS THE RAID AND I REMEMBERED HOW BRAVE MY OWN HUSBAND WAS THE DAY BEFORE AS HE USED OVER HALF A CAN TO KILL THE WASPS . SO I FIGURED OK I WILLJUST FLUSH THIS SPIDER OUT WITH END OF THE BASE BALL BAT AND THEN I WILL SMASHHHHHH IT.. WELL I MOVED THIS AND I MOVED THAT IN THE TOY BOX AND THE SPIDER MOVED AND I MOVED AGAIN AND SPIDER MOVED AND MANAGED OH SO NICELY TO CAMAFLOUGE ITSLEF AMONG THE CARS AND THE ARMY MEN .. AFTER SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO FIND THE SPIDER WITHOUT ACTUALLY TOUCHING ANY TOYS WITH MY HANDS I NOTICED MY NEIGHBOR ACROSS THE WAY LOOKING AT ME CURIOUSLY AS I KNOW I MUST HAVE BEEN A SITE.. STRETCHED WAYOUT TO KEEP MY DISTANCE FROM THE SPIDER AND BANGING ROUND INSIDE THIS BOX WITH AN ALUMINUM BASE BALL BAT .. AND I LOOK AT HIM AND HE SMILES AND I SMILE AND I SAYYYY AS THOUGH ITS THE MOST OBVIOUS THING IN THE WORLD.. SPIDERRRRRRR .. BIG ONE IN MY TOYSSS.. AND HE LOOKS AT ME AND SAYS OHHH.. AND HE GOES BACK INSIDE THE HOUSE.. WOW I FELT REALLY STUPID… SO I PUT THE BASE BALL BAT DOWN AND MY SON SAYS WHERE U GOING I SAID BACK INTO THE HOUSE.. AND HE SAYS WHAT BOUT THE SPIDER MOMA.. AND I SAID WELL IF YOU SEE HIM AGAIN  YOUR DADDY WILL GET IT WHEN HE GETS HOME… AND WITH THAT I WENT INSIDE THE HOUSE AND I SAT DOWN … THE GIANT TARANTULA ON MY PORCH IS STILL FREE TO LIVE AMONG THE TOYS ANOTHER DAY..

  1. We have lots of big spiders here. I tend to use a good deal of surface spray around doors etc. to poison them but even then they often come in as lively as ever. When they are the size of my hand or bigger there is no way I’m letting it get away to come back another day! They are very quick here so I’ve learned to start spraying from a distance and walk up to them. That way they do not start running straight off and they get a good dose of the spray.

    1. GOOD MORNING.. WELL I GUESS I LET THIS ONE GET AWAY AND SO HOPEFULLY IT WONT COME BACK ANOTHER DAY. LOL. WE GET SOME BIG ONES HERE.. SIZE OF OUR HAND TOO.. I HAD ONE OTHER NITE WHILE I WAS ON CHAT WITH MY CANADIAN MOMA. COME ACROSS MY DESK PRETTY DARN BIG. AND IT WAS MOVING TOWARD MY LAP TOP KEY BOARD. I WAS SO FREAKED I SHOVED MY CHAIR BACK SO HARD ALMOST FELL AND BUSTED MY BUTT. GOOD THING HARD WOOD FLOORS AND ROLLERS ON CHAIR.. THEN I WAS CALLING MY BRAVE HUSBAND TO COME IN AND KILL IT.. AS HUNNY, SPIDER WAS TOO BIG FOR ME TO TRY TO DO THIS.. I HATE THEM.. I AM TERRIFIED OF THESE CREEPY CRAWLY MEANACES . I HAD A FRIEND SAID TO ME OTHER DAY. WELL SPIDERS ARE GOOD THEY EAT OTHER BUGS. WELL OK OTHER BUGS I DONT CARE BOUT. ITS THESE BIG SPIDERS I DO .. AND ONLY GOOD SPIDER TO ME IS DEAD ONE. LOL…
      SO LIKE YOU HUN I WOULD BE SPRAYING STANDING WAY BACK AND THEN GET CLOSER.. BUT I WOULD FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE WITH A FLAME THROWER. HAHAHAHA..
      THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENT. GOD BLESS..
