Last night was a Dark Night, a night of Fright.
Our neighbor forgot to turn on our nightlight.
The bathroom is dark as a moonless night.
4 AM, Bob and Jake go in back yard, my eyes are burning because I was awake half the night (another story). I stumble in the bathroom, the dark bathroom.
The usually I can see well enough without a light on because our neighbors side porch light is our night light for the bathroom.
She forgot to turn it on.
I need my eye drops so I flip on the light, it hurts my eyes so I sit on the throne with my eyes closed, I blink a few times, to allow my eyes to adjust to the light. My eyes open fully...
Sitting on the rim of the step that goes into the shower, 2 feet from my FOOT is a GINORMOUS SPIDER.. it is 3 inches across ( I swear). I don't move, I think I must move. I slowly inch to the door and race down the hall to get
Jack the Giant Killer Bob the Spider Killer. He has just stepped out of the pool and is drying off.. HE CAN"T HEAR ME... his hearing aids are in the bathroom.
I wave the fly swat madly out the door, wildly using arm/hand signal saying COME HERE... he runs to me and I do a big circle with my fingers and wave the flay swat. WHAT??? he says.. I SCREAM LOUDLY
SPIDER!!!!! SPIDER....and run down the hall. Under my breathe I am saying over and over, please be there, please be there. IT WAS.
He SWATS it, picks it up with toilet tissue and flushes down the toilet. I keep FEELING things crawling on me, and saying over and over, IT"S AS BIG AS MY COFFEE CUP! it WAS!
I say, do your REALIZE I was in that bathroom THREE times during the night? IN THE DARK! It was sitting there while I was sitting there. OMG!!!!! OMG!!!!!
Hello, my name is Sandra and I suffer from Arachnophobia... 2 hours later, carrying sheets out to the washer, I step out the door barefoot and he has left a fan plug laying where I step on it. I shriek! its a spider.. Actually I just jumped 2 foot off the floor and looked down. it will be DAYS before I don't feel them crawling on me. A hair fell down my back and I am shrieking, what's on my back? what it is? HE REALLY WAS 3 inches across, Florida has these Giant things... this is only the 2nd time I have seen one in this house in 27 years and the first time was a couple months ago.. OH NOOO I placed a call to the Real Estate Agent
