I Have a Spider In My Room

    Quite a Few Through the Years

    Spiders have never bothered me. I've even named a few of them. I've lived in old houses and spiders seem to be especially attracted to them. I hate killing things. Except mosquitos. But spiders are safe. When I was little someone (my grandmother, I think) told me spiders in...

    This Is What Happens

    Whenever there is a spider in my room i want to kill it, but I don't want to be too close to it. What I do is I throw something at it from far away, preferably a book. But if the spider id an inch or larger than I run out of my room and cry to my parents and they kill it.

    Spiders Begot By Spiders

    I remember there were some spiders that used to live in my room. I am a lot of things, but someone who sweeps out the corners of his room, I am not. One day I was messing around at my desk doing something when I spotted a fly crawling on my knee. Upon seeing this flies...

    His name is Louis, and he's the "keep to

    himself" sort. I give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he is prone to social anxiety as opposed to snobbery. I think that's what decent neighbours ought to do. Besides, I don't want to risk the potential for awkward encounters (we tend to run in to each other often...

    Legacy of the Spider

    I have quite a talent for rambling on about things which are irrelevant, unimportant and that don't matter. So, this seems good for me. :-P In my old house, years ago when I was younger, there was a giant spider, which I only saw once or twice. It was sort of like the...

    There's Usually A Few Around

    Other than 2 or 3 brown recluses, which I killed,I let them be.They keep the bugs down,and as long as they stay out of the way,no problem.Had to put Herbie the wolf spider out of the kitchen though,he was a little too much for the gf.

    I hate killing spiders, but I hate seeing them in my house. Maybe I'm crazy but I always feel really anxious before killing a spider and then really guilty about it afterwords.
