Day 16: Attack of the spiders!

Look closely. Or better yet, click on the photo to enlarge. There are two horrid disgusting spiders in these plastic boxes!!

I was sitting on the couch this morning surfing the internet as usual and I looked across and saw a huge spider crawling on the couch opposite me. After shrieking in terror I went to the kitchen and got a plastic box to catch it. I went back to the living room and the spider had disappeared (of course). So I pulled up the cushion of the sofa and there he was. I captured him and felt quite pleased with myself...and then I look up and there's another one sitting right in front of me!!! Cue shrieking and plastic box capture once more. I then left the spiders in the boxes while I got ready for work as punishment, so they could think about what they'd done.

Then I threw them in the rubbish bin. Apologies to the animal lovers and recyclers, but it had to be done.

No apologies needed! I usually just hoover them up!

But the bin?!? Can't they just crawl out whenever they want??

I threw them away as is - in those containers!! And I didn't throw them in the bin actually - it was rubbish collection today, so they went in the bag and straight out onto the kerb! Bye bye little spiders!
