Fright Night!

Bedtime is supposed to be relaxing. There I was nice and comfy, leaning on my elbow, with puzzle book across other halves side of the bed, trying to think of an answer.  What happens? A giant spider decides to walk over the side of the bed and saunter onto my puzzle book. I don't know who got the biggest fright, the spider who froze or me screaming at the top of my lungs while dancing the bed on all fours. I stop screaming, but I'm still doing a merry dance across the bed, but now I'm wondering, how the hell do I make it to the bathroom to grab a glass. Cause as soon as I stop looking at the spider, it's going to hide. 
Funny, that even if you side look at a spider, it still knows your looking and doesn't move.  So what do I do, I dive to the bathroom, grab glass, open window in 2 secs flat and guess what, when I return, no bloody spider. I shake the duvet, I shake pillows, I even lift the bed, still no spider. I'm now thinking, where the hell am I going to sleep? Cause there is no way, I'm getting back into that bed.  When all of a sudden it scurries across one of the pillows. At this point, the adrenaline is pumping through my body, but I'm thinking, I really wish I had orangutans arms to be able to put the glass over this sucker. One orangutan arm later, the spider is safely in the glass. I'm know thinking, what the hell do I do with it? (I'm not one for killing even the ugliest looking creepy crawlies) So I have to imagine I have a second orangutan arm and slip my puzzle book under the glass( yes the same puzzle book I originally shook the sauntering spider off). All the while the spider is having a fight with its own reflection.  I bound to the bathroom, heart racing, mouth dry and manage to get the spider out of the glass on to the window ledge and slam the window shut, all in one action.

I'm now downstairs drinking a cup of tea, trying to calm my nerves but also thinking, please don't let it's family be waiting for me when I go back upstairs. The End x


  1. Yikes!!! I tell you what, you're a lot braver than me! If there'd been a spider in my bed, the whole street would have heard me.

    I've had three of those beasts in the house in the last few weeks. The cats got the first one, the second one disappeared, and Mr Blackbeard squished the third one.

  2. Hahaha! I think the guy next door fell out of bed when he heard me scream. I haven't seen him yet but he's sure to ask what was wrong!

    I had to be brave Ozzy, O/H was on nightshift. I really didn't feel like giving up my cozy bed to the spider whilst I slept downstairs on the couch. lol Scariest time of my life trying to get the spider in the glass. it looked like it was headbutting it, nutter.
    Now I've just seen what looks like the same spider giving me evils in the bathroom. Yikes!
