It Ate My Friend

Damn. I lost a friend this morning.

And honestly, I don't have that many to lose.

There was this little black spider that lived on the window of the door between the sun porch and the garage, between the curtain and the glass. Now, normally, I would kill it immediately. But this one was kinda sorta cute.

And it wasn't hurting anything. Just hangin' out, crawlin' around. Kinda like an ant farm.

So this morning I flip on the light and go out for my morning coffee.

The first thing I did was glance at the door and stopped dead in my tracks.

There was this big honkin' ugly ass brown spider EATIN' my friend. And I don't mean that in a good way.

This dude is a bad ass. And aggressive.....not to mention quick. I went inside to find some sort of deadly chemical to drown it in, and he was gone.

And there was no trace of my little friend.

So now I'm on the war path. It's bad enough that there's a shit load of spiders around here. But this one is on the short list. It's obviously homicidal. Not to mention rude. After all, it's not at all polite to eat and run!!

I'm right with you. I had a little one on my windowsill at an apartment. I'd talk to it, check on it, when the web got too big or messy, I'd make sure it wasn't around, clean it up and let it start over.

Other times, if I've seen one and it was up high by the ceiling or in a corner, I'd always say, "You stay up there and we're fine. But if you drop below eye level, I'm sorry...but the game will be over." And it'd work fine that way.

See that's how it works. If its small, it's cute and it can stay up high. But if its big, ugly or crawling on the floor...seyonara sister. You're toast!

That doesn't make us weird, right? Nah. Didn't think so! ;)

Uh... Maybe we can get you a goldfish or something. You need better pets.

Big and brown??
That is not good. You must engage and terminate with EXTREME prejudice!

Big and Brown, sound like a Brown recluse, they bite and it hurts like hell, don't think it's posionous though, but you better check.

But above all kill it and kill it deader then dead and then kill all other bugs so it and it's friends don't take up residence because they eat bugs.

I have a little spider on my kitchen windowsill. He/she eats the little flies and assorted other pesties that come in.... I would be soooo sad if something ate that little guy! You go Tammi -- KILL KILL KILL! ;)
