    Wolf Spider Attack! (Dramatic Writing)

    There are two things I know I'm afraid of in this world. 1.) Spiders and 2.) Bigger spiders A few years ago I came across this gargantuan wolf spider in my tiny closet sized room at my mom's house. I am naturally an extremely messy, unorganized person so on a weekly basis I had...

    Rules 1-6

    1. If I see it, no matter where it is, it needs to die. 2. I cannot touch or stomp or go within 3 feet of it. 3. If it is on me I will need to visit the ER (one time i burned my shoulder with my hairdryer, because one was on me) 4. If it moved under any furniture it will be...

    I woke up last night having still left the

    light on in my room, and noticed a black spec out of the corner of my eye reflected in the mirror. Turning around, it was a HUGE house spider, chunky body and long legs. Oh god, I thought. I weighed up the options. Shall I just switch the light off knowing this imposter was here...

    A Spider Tried to Kill Me

    I am not sure why, but I am absolutely terrified of spiders, to the point that it is a very real phobia and affects my life. I will not go out of my house at night during warmer weather because that is when they come out of hiding, and I am deathly afraid I will get dropped...

    Trembling

    Spiders and I don't get along. We've never got along. They hate me and I hate them. Once I was on my bed doodling on a scrap of paper when I feel this tingling on my bare foot. It was a spider. A few days later I'm having a bath. I reached down for my towel, and the same spider...

    I admit my phobia is completely irrational

    and for no apparent reason... But the pure terror I process when in contact with a spider is real! Spider on the doorway? No way will I enter until it's gone! "It's only a daddy-long-legs!", yeah well you'd still be scared If a murderer came at you with a butter knife! It's not...

    Evil!

    Spiders are pure evil. They're constantly plotting against me, I just know it. I mean, they have so many legs to rub together while pondering their next diabolical strike to surprise me, or make me walk into their webs and spend the next 10 minutes trying to get it off :P

    I Hate Spiders Soooo Much!!

    Seriously, I've never met anyone who hates them as much as me! My boyfriend laughs at me because I can spot them a mile away! I cry if they come near me and I can't sleep if one has been in my bedroom! It's so pathetic! I wish I wasn't so scared!

    I couldn't tell you how many times my husband

    has heard me say, "KILL IT OR I'M MOVING OUT!!!". Not only am I scared to death of spiders (and all other bugs), I apparently must micro-manage the killing process of them as well. 1. No, you cannot capture it and let it go back outside because it must learn the consequences...
