Death by Chlorine




Bob was in his bathroom I was in mine. I hear a loud holy *&%$*& !

I walk down the hall and say "What?? What!!"

 He says "a spider bigger than a 50 cent piece just walked out of the  toilet paper roll"

I say "was its body really huge, I mean PUFFY and fat?  THAT is what I saw in mine a few months ago. where is it?  where IS IT???"

He answered " you don't have to worry about that one anymore"

"What if there are TWO?"  I say.

He says  "that is probably the one you saw."

I say... "oh no he may have a spouse! maybe even a pregnant one!!!

This was 2 weeks ago... and . For the past two weeks every time anything touched my leg in my bathroom I thought it was a spider. Once I dropped a tiny piece of toilet paper and as it brushed my leg I jumped and yelled.

One time I put some water on the back of my hair where I have a bald spot and a cowlick and the water rolled down my back and I thought it was a spider running down my back. Every time I take a shower I feel like one is going to run up my leg. I get soap in my eyes when washing my hair because I can't leave them closed because what if I don't see the spider???

 Friday morning while cleaning the shower I moved the bottle of dog shampoo and out ran a giant spider  the size of a Volkswagen. Her bad luck was I had  a spray bottle of cleaner with bleach in my hand...

Along Came A Spider to her Death by Chlorine ... Now I spend every moment wondering if there's a family left behind of if they died with her....NEED I SAY I do not touch the toilet paper roll in the dark any longer?
PS. Thursday morning at the YMCA pool, I found a spider climbing down a web from the ladder to the pool side. I yelled for Brian, our lifeguard and he came and popped it with his hands. Thank You Brian..  I mean how would I get out of the pool if there was a spider on the ladder??? hummm???

A soda cap crab!! I love it! Is it at the Y? Well, you know I have serious arachnophobia. I would have been spared most of these sightings, because I would be dead after the first one.

Must be a very horrifying bathroom experience each time :)
Hope you'll get rid of them.

YIKES! I've seen some pretty big spiders but never a Volkswagen sized one :) I'm not a fan but I'm ok with them so long as they don't get too close.

Oh my goodness. I Saw a centipede in the house and now I am on high alert all the time. I know the feeling!

Hello, I love the cool crab! I do not like spiders and would die before touching one. I would be checking the toilet paper rolls from now on. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

Madi and Mom said...

Oh MS I do not like spiders either they are sneaking and fast. I tell B all the time I'd rather have a tiger after me than a spider at least I could see the tiger and know when it was about to pounce.
Ummmmmm I might have to keep a bottle of bleach near by that was funny
Hugs Cecilia
PS Madi is no help with bugs either. When she sees one she puts a fierce feline stare on it waiting for me to see it too then I scream and that brings B running

Hello again Sandra!:) Thank you for your generous comments and for following my blog. Back problems are a nuisance aren't they! What a horrible experience you had! I'm also scared of spiders, it's the way they lurk in dark corners and run really fast!:))... but if I have the camera between me and the spider I'm fine, as it kind of acts as a barrier, but I never take my eyes of one, just in case!!
Have a great Weekend!:)

You are so funny!
Still, I absolutely shivered at your descriptions. Out here we've something huge and puffy that Tom calls a "wolfie" (spider) ... and has me practically courting a coronary.
I can't even imagine seeing one come marching out of a toilet paper roll!

i'm glad spideys don't really bother me - unless i walk into their webs...

We've had a few spiders in the house lately but never the size of a Volkswagon!
Now we do get centipedes in the house which are scary and totally disgusting...
Spiders in the toilet paper roll would undo me completely.

Jo said...

Oh LOL, Sandra. You do relate a "yarn" so well. I just had to scroll up again and read about the spider as big as a Volkswagen. OH MY WORD. Hilarious post.

I killed a LARGE spider in the garage once and when I did - there were hundreds of babies that came out of it - yike. Good luck - I hate spiders.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Spiders and I don't get along either.

Mildred said...

I hate spiders too. A spider or mosquito or something ate up my legs during the night! I itch and have little red bites. Now I have the creeps just like you!
Sorry to be late visiting. A busy, crazy day.

Heidrun Khokhar, KleinsteMotte said...

Oh my. Are the spiders of a deadly nature? I startle at any thing unsusal but do not have big fear as yet.

Gail said...

Silly! I'm still smiling.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my....I don't like spiders at all but I'm the one who always has to kill them. Hope that's the last of them in your house for a long time!!

Felicia said...

LOL. But hey I don't blame you I HATE spiders too. You are a wonderful story teller.

Rose said...

LOL at the spider stories....not that I want one on me. I just do not. Don't really like them in my house...but I do love my garden spiders. As long as they stay in their space.

A question about a totally different subject...I have been meaning to email and ask if you know what happened to Montana Girl's blog?

Ida said...

Thank you for the good laugh. I don't like spiders much myself but I've become less afraid of them then I use to be. Occasionally I still squish a few but sometimes I actually help them back outside if they are in the house. Those jumping ones still scare the heebie jeebies out of me though.

Spider the size of a VW! OK, that does it. I am NOT moving further south!
