that I know of.
Dan was at chess tonight, so I was home alone
working watching bad television. I decided to go downstairs to look for some storage bins for my office. I found them and was going to head back upstairs to continue working watching bad television.
A Huntsman spider.
Pay special note to this line from the Wikipedia entry: They have been known to inflict defensive bites, but are not widely regarded as dangerous to healthy humans.
I knew this already, but it’s nice to hear it again.
I then proceeded up the stairs to put away my bins and wait for Dan. I decided to sit on the steps and watch the spider; I didn’t want it to move and hide before Dan got home.
I watched for 10 minutes (and texted my friend Kayla pictures while I waited).
When Dan came home, he took care of the spider.
I know. We should let the spider live. It does eat bugs, and anything that would eat a cockroach should be my friend, right? I just don’t think I’d be all that good at shooing a Huntsman out the door and into the yard.
I think it’s something I need to work on.
