DH would have nightmares for WEEKS if I showed him that. Spiders scare the heck out of him, for some reason (and he is not easily scared). I'm the designated spider killer in the house.

Meh. It's definitely scary and gross and big... but if you read it, it can't eat the bird all in one go... which is a bit bitter, anyway.

I am very arachnaphobic, but for some reason, that doesn't scare me as much as smaller spiders. I think it's because there's no way that thing could sneak into my house and into my bed. At least with a spider that big you can see it coming and beat it with a baseball bat.

That was not bad. That's far more animal than spider, from my spider-fearing perspective.
