Dashboard of Doom

The world has one less spider in it tonight. You're welcome.

I was driving in the dark to pick up my son when a small spider started climbing up the windshield in front of me. INSIDE THE CAR. While continuing to drive, I kicked off my left shoe, picked it up and started swatting at the thing on the glass. It dropped to the dash, so I pounded it into oblivion. I clicked on the ceiling light when I came to a red light. Yeah, that sucker was arachnopaste. Victory is mine.

Instantly I thought of Java and her recent entomological adventure. The timing is...interesting. Is this a sinister plot? Have they targeted our group of bloggers? Be very careful.

No accompanying graphics. You're welcome.

HA HA HA HA!! Good for you, Birdie. Very cool headed response, I must say.

if a centipede makes an appearance in my house this evening, you two ladies are in for it.

you have been warned. when an envelope arrives on your doorstep with something crunchy with possible guts dripping out of it, don't say i did not warn you.

That's it, sick'em Birdie! All those legs, lets them get up to no good faster!

Oh, my gosh, the carnage...last week I pulled over to the side of the road to get a picture of the little spider in my car, so I can find out what he is...I DIDN'T kill him, though. (I might've painted over one in the dining room last weekend, though...)

Poor little spider...

"SOME PIG", indeed.
