Journal, Lauren

While making our traditional trip to Wal-Mart after church yesterday,  I asked Lloyd to drive by the house so we could get our Icee cups to re-fill them.  I got out the car, ran to the house, but was frozen at the front door by this giant spider.  I would have put a quarter by him for scale but a) I was terrified and b) I’m pretty sure he would have eaten it.

I will eat your cats while you're gone.

    What did you do with him? I had one make a web between my car and the bushes next to my car. The morning I discovered him, I had to get in my car from the passenger side and drive off. His web broke and he was with the half that was stuck to the car -- of course. I drove like mad, hoping he would get blown off the car, but he was still there when I got to work. Because I knew I would be his next victim if I didn’t do something about him, I knocked him off the car and stomped. I wasn’t prepared for the splatter pattern. Yeck!

      …Then he kissed Kirsten Dunst, again. I don’t know why I stay with him, but he spins those marvelous webs…

    Look, he’s crawling up my wall
    Black and hairy, very small
    Now he’s up above my head
    Hanging by a little thread
    Boris the spider

    Now he’s dropped on to the floor
    Heading for the bedroom door
    Maybe he’s as scared as me
    Where’s he gone now, I can’t see
    Boris the spider

    There he is wrapped in a ball
    Doesn’t seem to move at all
    Perhaps he’s dead, I’ll just make sure
    Pick this book up off the floor
    Boris the spider

    He’s come to a sticky end
    Don’t think he will ever mend
    Never more will he crawl ’round
    He’s embedded in the ground
    Boris the spider

    I took my laundry into the basement of Philip Hall one night. In the sink was a big, hairy Gray spider that must have been two inches long. He (she?) reared back on its back hind legs as if it were going to leap at my face.

    Luckily I was doing laundry and one more pair of shorts JUST fit.
