I have to make a confession. I murdered a spider today.

I was folding laundry when a spider crawled across my arm and over my hand. IT WAS BIGGER THAN A LOONIE! I swear to god. I’m not exaggerating so you have sympathy. This spider was HUGE!!

I shrieked like a girl. Gerry shrieked like a girl and the next thing I knew I was pounding the spider to a pulp with my shoe.

I feel bad. Time to re-set my vegan-o-meter back to zero.

    LOL! That is so funny. You are forgiven & so is Gerry for shrieking like a girl.

    I understand how you feel. We moved “down south” to NC & you would not believe how big the spiders are here. Ugh…. But what’s even worse are the occasional huge snakes I see. A few weeks ago one slithered across my feet while I was watering my plants. And I screamed like a girl, too!!!

    Even though I’m vegan and Buddhist, I’m terribly arachnophobic so I would have done the same thing if I wasn’t paralyzed with fear. I’m glad you killed the giant bugger! My skin is crawling already. Gross.

    I ate a gnat of some sort last summer, but I believe the bug was determined to kill himself. Why fly into an open mouth? That’s just stupid.

    Aww Sarah. Sometimes we just react. Don’t beat yourself up too much. He’s gone to a better place.

    I relocated a black widow the other day to a field FAR from my home. (I was afraid that if I moved her just a little ways away she would find her way back and be really pissed that I had kept her in a jar the whole night so that I could move her the next day) Anyway the whole fam was in the car so the only place I could put the spider was between my knees and thighs while I drove to this far away location. Okay so this is one of those things that seems like a good idea until you actually do it. I was sure we would get into an accident, live, but then be killed by the widow. Well she made it to her new home.
    The next night I found another one in the same area. I confess I killed her, I felt bad but the stress of transporting another one so soon just couldn’t be done.

    wow. at the exact same moment I was reading your post, johnny started to scream so loud because of a big and ugly spider going around the house really fast. I managed to put an upside-down glass on top of the spider with a piece of paper under it, then i took it outside.
    eve: 1 , spider: 0

    much discussion of spiders, who I generally relocate, but am I a bad vegan for getting fed up with the ant colony I found in my kitchen trash can? I tried & tried to relocate – maybe I did move about 1 million, but alas, the remaining million were submitted to the shameful "pool of death" as my 6 yr old called it – I just put the hose on them. Maybe they can be food for all the dead spiders??
