I promise not to kill you  

As I was driving to the dentist this morning, I was startled by a spider crawling along the edge of my hat brim, right in front of my eyes. I took off the hat and, at the next stop light, rolled down the window and shook the creature off.

And what was the next song to come up on the iPod? "Spider" by They Might Be Giants.

(Thank you for not squishing it.)

Yay! I try to avoid squishing spiders, unless they leap at me with knives and forks yelling "NYAR!"

We love you Spider!

Had it been me, I would have:
1) screamed like something out of a Hollywood horror movie.
2) flailed about as if having a seizure.
3) probably caused a horrific flaming car crash.

Not a fan of the ol' arachnids, you see...

Gotta go with the other Julie on this one. The only thing that would have kept me from squishing the spider would be the fact that I was busy dying in a horrible car crash.

I have extended kindness so many times for sister spider. She eats so many vexing insects! I do squish sometimes, but only after considering the alternatives.
