Jason's gone tonight.
taking a test.
so here I am, in this apartment with my computer and the SPIDERS!
HUGE. GIGANTIC! FREAKY! spiders.
we catch them under the little white cupboard in our kitchen.
& now under there sits the most hugantic one yet.
we are really good at catching big ones. I'm pretty sure they are hobos.
(i gotta get outa here!)
fall is in the air.
and the biggest spiders in town all know it, tha's why they are making a break for my apartment!
I'm feeling super creepy-crawly right now.
well, anyway, feel free to come over for a visit any time!
(and when you come would you mind taking out this spidey trap for me. I can't seem to make myself touch it. I start thinking that I'm real strong and tough and can do it myself. so then I start bending over, start to stare at the freaky-death spider along with his brother and a few centipede-type creatures, and then I start whimpering, shaking, and yelping out little screams. I've decided that I'm not allowed over by that wall anymore.)
the other day (ok, so it was like last month) I was trying to find something in the bookshelf in our bedroom and I reached under it to get something that fell and my fingers got stuck on the sticky-spidey-trap under there RIGHT NEXT TO A BIG ONE! it was like lightning--how fast I jumped up and away from that spot. I was out of the bedroom and into the hall. Jason had been sitting next to me and wasn't exactly sure what had happened, pretty confused for a moment actually, because of my screaming and bawling and convulsing. (yes, I am DEATHLY afraid of spiders. a few years ago, when the new Charlotte's Web came out Audrey tried to make me watch it with her and the chillens. as soon as that NASTY spider with Julia Robert's voice dropped down into the screen I was soooooooo outa there! it caused a great little giggle for Audge and the boys.)
anyway, Jason had to hold onto me for a while because my body wouldn't stop twitching & shaking and shivering, and I couldn't stop yelping. it was quite the traumatic experience, if you can imagine. (my heck, my body is having a reaction just remembering it.)
I haven't shared that with anyone.
consider yourself a real, true friend now.
(and don't judge me.)
I'm thinking about turning on a movie. get my mind away from under the little white cupboard and the sicko-freak spiders that live/die there. I rented Baby Mama and Penelope the other day. (I was a little surprised how much I actually liked Baby Mama, and a little disappointed in Penelope. maybe I had my hopes up a little much. maybe I'm just still trying to figure out why Reese Witherspoon (LOVE HER!) took on such a minor roll in such a....... can't think of the right word..... movie.) haven't taken them back yet. or I just might give Definitely Maybe another round.
