Pest Control

This morning I was getting ready to put on my make-up and I looked down and there was one of the largest wolf spiders I’ve ever seen just standing there on the heat register.

Cue the Olaf scream: 

So I slowly carefully opened the door to the cabinet below the sink, pulled out the sink clearer spray bottle, pulled the area rug away from the spider (don’t want to bleach the rug you know) and started spraying. He made a sloppy wet run for the bedroom with me in hot pursuit spraying all the way. He didn’t seem to be slowing down so I finally resorted to removing my slipper and giving him a good WHACK just as he crossed the bedroom threshold. I used a paper towel to remove the body from the floor and deposit him in the trash. Then I stood there trying to recover from my exertions.

I looked up to see how my roomies had reacted:
.
Kitty was laying down on the bed peering over the edge with wide eyes enjoying the show. In the other direction,  Harland was in the kitchen calmly munching away on his cereal and reading a newspaper.
.
“Aren’t you glad you didn’t marry a squeamish wife?” I asked.
.
“Sure,” he replied without lifting his eyes from the newspaper, and continuing to crunch away on his cereal.
.
SIGH….
