So, I'm getting ready for bed in the bathroom last night, and after I took out my contacts, I noticed a very big, quick bug of some kind skittering across the floor. Since I couldn't see what it was exactly, I stealthily ran to my bedroom to get my glasses to further assess the situation. Did I need to call Jordan? Could I handle it myself? When I don't have my glasses on, everything is blurry and a little bigger than it really is. I didn't want to expose my girly wussiness if I didn't need to. So i came back in to the bathroom and crouched on the ground to find the sucker and it attacked. It never touched me but it new it was in trouble. I quickly looked back into the office where Jordan was sitting--totally zoned into an email he was writing--it would take him at least a minute to drop it and come help me--it was NOW OR NEVER. I mustered my courage and smashed the thing to smithereens on the bottom of my tennis shoe. I couldn't look at it and promptly ran into the office like I was hiding. I half expected it to sprout an extra body and come after me. My heart was racing and I was breathing hard. Once I calmed down I brought the shoe to Jordan so he could see it and he said..."Wow. That's really big!" Like he didn't believe me. I have since scouted the internet for a picture of a spider that most resembles the beast and this is what I came up with:
Gah! This morning, I woke up and got ready to exercise with Jordan (don't get any ideas that we are as awesome as we were in January during P90x--we're just trying to get back on the ball) and Jordan says, "Well, whatddya know? Here's another one" and smashes ANOTHER one in the living room!! I immediately went and put my shoes on to exercise and was definitely thinking about those suckers every single time I got on the floor for superman/banana. If I see one more I might be forced to buy some bug spray.
Note: Dear penpal:
I saw your spider post and laughed so hard!! I can't wait to hear Jackson talking so much and I'm glad that you got that thing taken care of :) and this post is pretty much for you too, who are we kidding? hah
