This thing was HUGE!

Halloween is not the only scary thing about October. I was out walking today and did not realize I was heading straight into a huge 4-foot spider web. I only noticed it because the spider that built it saw me coming and ran up to the top. I was inches away from walking right into it, face first. If that happened, you’d find me in the psychiatric ward of the hospital in the S.I.F.T. ward (Spider In Face Trauma!) This thing was HUGE! He ran up to the top and then looked down at me and I swear I heard a voice say, “What are you lookin’ at?” I decided to stare him down but then he started back down the web. He was either the biggest spider I’ve ever seen or he was carrying a backpack. I took a stick and knocked down part of the web and ran, afraid to look back in case he was mad and bungee jumped down his web to come after me. You know what doesn’t scare me now? Scorpions.

    You’re such a woos! When we were kids in Byron, I was asleep dreaming good stuff when something woke me up when it landed on my face. I used the sheet to brush it off and trapped it there, but couldn’t get back to sleep. I had to look. It was huge! To this day I still envision it making it’s slow decent in the night onto my face!! Of course I always do that when I’m just getting to sleep.

    “I took a stick and knocked down part of the web and ran” that’s me!! 🙂 The running part!! 🙂
    A Spider spun his web one day on the antenna of my Grand Cherokee Laredo?!?!
    I was on my way for an oil change and ended up washing my jeep before leaving. I was afraid to go near the thing because it was huge and looked more hairy than my great-aunt Mary’s upper lip! (she’s 93 so we try not to make fun. 🙂
    Anyway, I kept hitting it with the hose, but it wasn’t budging!! I even tried every setting, finally, I had to yell for Mike and he took care of the thing for me.
    But I hear you sista!! Spiders scare the crap out of me!
    Love your story!! 🙂

    Tearing down part of his web after all that hard work making it and then running away…lol…so funny! Spiders are very talented. They don’t scare me, but I do keep my distances. I like watching them make a web and they are some busy insects and work really fast, so I can bet he has made another one or maybe even patched up what mess was there…
    I’m really glad you didn’t get all webbed out by running into it because you really seem afraid of them. Spiders I can handle, snakes are my number one fear…
    Maybe someday you can over come your fear of spiders like you have with the scorpions. I hope so 🙂

    I love to watch when someone walks into a web…it is hilarious to watch them try to get out of it! As long as it isn’t me that is!!
