Do you guys remember that movie?
Anyway... Im getting ready to get in my shower one morning... and I look down in this tin can that I had next to my tub... and I see a GIANT spider. I was just getting ready to scold the kids for leaving such a creepy toy like that in the bathroom.. but when I kicked the can... IT MOVED!
Now, I dont know where everyone's from. Maybe in your neck of the woods giant spiders come a dime a dozen. But here, in Minnesota, not so much. Especially not in a suburban apartment complex.
So here I am as pale as a ghost, running out the bathroom screaming. It was inside this tin can... so I couldn't squish it with anything... But I knew it couldn't live. So... I poured a couple inches of water in the can. Ive washed smaller spiders down my tub drain before... they pretty much die right when the water hits 'em. But this Mo'Fo wasn't goin down so easily. He was swimming. Not to mention, he wasn't in the tub (no drain to wash him down), he was in a can. I wasn't about to take him out. And me, being scared he would eventually escape, put a book on top of the can... and waited.
I come back a half hour later, and he is still swimming. So... I just put the book back over it... I had to run some errands.
When I return home... my bathroom floor was covered in water, but the book was still on the can. I lift up the book... and indeed the water is gone but the spider is still there. I shake the can... and finally... Im sure he's a goner.
I couldn't find batteries for my camera so I hung on to the corpse for a day or two... gross right? Well W'EVER!!! I needed a picture!!! Whats even more gross is how I used the tip of a pencil to pose Mr.Spidey. His body was all squishy yet, seemed to be going through some sort of rigamortis.. it smelled too... like a tiny, eight legged human corpse or something.
My mom says its animal cruelty how I killed him (or her)... but, damn that.
