I hate spiders

I hate spiders!  I especially hate spiders that crawl up the inside of my car windshield.......while I'm driving or while I'm in the car at all!  I had to drive to the airport yesterday to pick up the husband.  I got there a little early, so I sat in my car and decided to read on my kindle while waiting.  Out of the corner of my eye I see movement, a shadow.  I didn't really think anything of it, figured it was the traffic outside.  After about 5 minutes I looked up and there it was.....a spider, a big brown spider, maybe a wolf spider, I don't was a spider......on the INSIDE of my windshield right in front me and crawling towards the top of the window.

After searching my car, while keeping one eye on the spider I realized I had no standard spider killing utensils.  As the panic began to intesify....did I mention it was a big spider........I finally found a small notepad.  Thankfully, yet not really, the spider moved down the window a bit and was in the perfect position for my death trap.  After lining up my shot, I squashed it!  But now I had another problem, what on earth was I going to do with it?  As the calm started to overtake me, I realized I had one lone kleenex in my purse.   So, Bev -1, Spider - 0.

I'm just thankful it didn't decide to come out of hiding as I was driving down the highway on my way to airport.  It wasn't the ideal driving conditions to begin with, what with the hail, terrential downpour and strong wind gusts. Okay, so that was only for about a 5 minute stretch, but still!   I had another spider incident a couple of years ago.  Only that time it did occur while I was driving down the interstate and it was one of the jumping spiders!!  Needless to say, I pulled over for that one.  That one unfortunately disappeared into the plastic of the car somewhere and I had to continue driving knowing it was there....somewhere.   Get the shivers just thinking about it!
