I thought of this quote (about myself) the second I walked through the door last night. I went to the grocery store after I put the kids to bed. When I left, I saw a HUGE spider on the lawnmower. Immediately I thought, "HOW am I going to get back in the house? I don't want to walk past that thing again!" If you haven't guessed it by now, I am deathly afraid of those 8-legged FREAKS! So when I got home, as soon as the garage door was opening, Mister spider decides he's awake and going to shimmy down his spider-web from the mower to a box. So of course I have to see him move. UGH! EW! BLEGH! I hate seeing them move. It's bad enough if they're still! So I called Tammy and said,
"What am I gonna do?"
'Spray it with bug spray' she tells me.
#1, I have to walk past the spider to GET to the bug spray. #2, I'm not brave enough to get that close to it. #3, I have to see it MOVE as it's writhing in pain on it's way to death. Uh-uh. So she says,
'Why don't you throw something at it so it'll move?'
"I don't want to see it move!"
'But then maybe it'll go and hide.'
"I don't want it to hide, because then I'm gonna worry all night that it crept into the house!"
I decide to drive around to the front and go in that way to unload the groceries. As I approach the front door, I realize I don't' have my house key! There goes that idea. So I'm back at the garage. I could just call Tyler, but he's sleeping since he has to wake up to go to work in 2 hrs. So I actually went to a neighbors house to see if their lights were on. They were. So I called said neighbor and asked if the husband would mind coming over and killing a spider for me. (It's about 9:30, BTW) He comes and kills the spider and I'm apologizing for calling so late and for something so stupid.
"I really appreciate it, I'm so afraid of spiders!"
'I know' he replies. 'Don't you remember I came and killed a spider for you a while back?'
Vague recollection. This must've been 3 years ago.
"Oh, well then I really feel like a loser for having you kill another one for me!" Oh well. Any other pathetic losers out there? No? Just me? Alright. I'll deal with it.
