I found a wolf spider creeping around in my bathroom last night! A freakin' wolf spider! Chilly almost had another heart attack! He doused it with window cleaner to stun it, but it kept crawling! He tried to drown it so we wouldn't have gross spider guts all over the tub. That thing would not give up! He finally resorted to the shoe stomp dismemberment. AND THE TWO HALVES CRAWLED BACK TO EACH OTHER! Finally, I swooped in with a tissue, grabbed the halves and flushed that sucker!
Wolf spider bites are dangerous business that can make you very ill and require hospitalization. So yes, I am glad Chilly murdered the wolf spider!
(Just so you know how much I love you all...I removed the picture of the spider because it was very scary. I want you to hang in for the whole post and not run away scared!)
If you live in southern AZ, the local fire departments will not come and rescue you from rattlesnakes (unless you've been attacked...) So if you see one crawling around, you're kind of screwed until it decides to leave (or you are brave enough to kill it...yes, I would kill it...actually, I would send my Dad out to kill it, but it would die.) It's snake season here now (lovely) and we have to watch for these evil creatures under our cars, on our porches, everywhere!
The Rant (for the ladies at the grocery store...)
When you see a family out in mid-week during the middle of the day, DO NOT approach the children of the family and ask why they are not in school. First of all, IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. Second, our school day is done. Third, ASK ME..THE PARENT, you ass! Do NOT put my children in that position because you think you are gonna "bust" me as a negligent parent. Trust me, you don't want to do this dance with me. I'll go all "my kid is smarter than you" on you in a New York minute and I can prove it! Just smile, wave and move on your merry way. It is not your job to police the world. My kids are smart, have tons of friends and are fantastic human beings. Stop hatin' the homeschoolers, old ladies in grocery stores!
Being the annoying blogger that I am, I wanted to try something fun with comments! Now, I love comments as much as most bloggers. I want to play a game with the comments today. I want to create a story with the comments. I will start our story and you pick it up from the comment listed above you. For example, "Once upon a time, there was a blogger...." You just continue the story with your comment. The next commenter will take a cue from the comment above and add to the story. We'll create our own Frankenblog! We will piece together a blogpost story from our comments! What say you? Are you in? I know you're all fabulous writers! (and anytime you want to wrap up one story line and head in a new direction, feel free to do so! It's Frankenblog!)
Here we go...."Once upon a time, in the land of Blog..."
p.s. Please do not feel obligated to play the Frankenblog game! Only if you really want to! I promise I won't hunt you down or anything weird! lol! Please feel free to just say hello, or this post is dumb, or I hate spiders...whatever floats your boat!
p.s.s. I realize this blog makes me sound like a stone cold killer. I only murder venomous creatures that threaten to destroy my family.
