Early Morning Dance...

Who put the spider in my grapes????

Those who really know me, know that I'm not a "girly-girl"...but you put even the smallest of 8-legged creatures anywhere near me and I'll squeal like the best of them!

I can't tell you how many times I handled that bag of grapes...this is what I CAN remember!
**Picked them out of many bags I looked at in the store.
**Scanned and bagged them myself.
**Put the bag in the truck.
**Brought the groceries in the house.
**Unpacked the groceries...laid the grapes on the counter for washing.
**Picked through the bag to find the bunch for my "Grape Salad" for the Family Reunion.
**Started washing the grapes
Really he was trying to get away from the running water...but I could have swore he had a vendetta...I don't know maybe he did?! Maybe I took out his cousin or something in the past.
I would have thought since the grapes came from California he would have been ready for some "Totally Tubular Surfing Man" (Believe me surfers REALLY do talk that way...when I was in Huntington Beach I actually heard this phrase) but instead I made sure he drowned...

Somebody...come empty the strainer in the sink...I'm not touching it! -- As I dance around the kitchen!

Remember it's WWKIP Day....

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

Oh Robin - you're NOT alone! I'm actually allergic to the wolf-spider and had one CHARGE me at my mother's house once - you would have thought an axe-murderer/rapist was right there threatening me!
I do "get" them (little menaces), myself - I had a friend who was so paralyzed by fear of spiders that I had to drive to her house to KILL one that was between her and her baby (it was sitting on the wall above the doorway, the baby asleep in her crib...very very threatening!)

No problem baby!! I laugh in the face of spiders. Hate them myself and it is my mission in life to kill any and all that are in my path. Ugliest and nastiest of all God's creation. Now, I was cornered by a possum in my garage and that is another story. Thing hissed at me. Screamed like a baby for "Andeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

OH HONEY! I am with you on the spider thing. Only my attack cat, who lazes around the house, lives with me and he just usually stares at them. There is usually no one to protect me from the spiders that camp out in my shower! So I get anything that is remotely close that can drown that baby down the drain.
I dislike those little 8-legged things.

EWw....I think I'd need a whole new sink after that. I know they're just little and scared and all that...but no. They're horrid things and I run screaming like a whacknut every time!

Dana said... does appear that the spider wanted you Robin. All of those opportunities to escape and it never did until the water ran? Me? I think you've been targeted. ;) (Unlike Cole, I have a bug/bird/rodent eating cat. Libbie will nail anything and then eat it [which is thoroughly disgusting but comes in very handy]). LOL P.S. How long will it be before you buy another bag of grapes?!?!?!

Bad news. Spiders often don't "go down the drain", but instead hide out in the overflow drain until the water stops, to reappear later.

Eensy, Weensy Spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out. Out came the sun and dried up all the rain, and the eensy weensy spider crawled up the spout again.
