M.I.A.

¤

it was the end of the day,

i walked in from the garage

and

in the corner of my eye ~

I SAW IT!

~

in the office, no less

it was big,

it was huge,

and

it stared with

ALL OF IT’S MIGHT!

~

not certain what to do,

i stood

still

trying to think

as a pounding heart

was drowning my thoughts ~

should i catch & release

or

squish & dispose ~

i don’t know…

i mean

WHAT IF IT BITES?

~

so

~

i ran back to the garage,

grabbed a few towels for defense

and

returned to the vicious imposter,

while i tried to compose

my squeamish, frenzied nerves

and

devise a plan of

ATTACK

~

but

~

before i commenced my evening campaign

of

tossing the towel, scooping up

and

taking outside,

i felt this arachnid

needed

a parting gift

~ a selfie ~

 to document it’s moment of

FAME

~

so

~

i got as close as i could,

set up the shot

and

tried my best not to scare it away

 ~ however ~

it

vaulted to the carpet,

scurried behind the bookcase

and

now

this vicious creature is

M.I.A.

!

!

spidey

the beast

!

        Its funny how that works…maybe Pee was letting you take the bite first and would then rush into the fray, lol.

    OMGoodness!!! I applaude your Mercy, but when they are INSIDE MY house, and are that big…I have very little mercy. I don’t reach for the towel…I reach for a heavy BOOT! 😮 I hope it doesn’t creep back in the middle of the night and pay you a visit, to say Happy Halloween 😮

        I found one twice that size sitting on one of my shampoo bottles in the shower when I lived in Alabama, and of course, I was the only one home. Needless to say Im surprised the neighbors didn’t call the cops in concern over all the screaming they heard while I had to deal with exterminating it!! :O still gives me the shibbbbers!!

  • 13. Planet Dream Diaries  |  October 9, 2014 at 5:25 pm

    AHHHHH!!!!!! Okay Kimberly, when it comes to spiders of any kind – especially that kind, and that size, you do not play with time!!!! EEK, FIND IT!!!!! Fabulous writing by the way … I probably should have begun my comment with that lol.

      Yes, well, I was still in debate whether I should you know so the bad deed or the good deed. I was hoping for some reinforcements from Pee – no. She could not seem to raise a paw, just plop her butt down. 🙂

        Make sure Pee doesn’t get bit!!!! I do the right thing for lizards – but when it comes to spiders or gigantic flying roaches (palmetto bugs) or silver fish – nope, God forgive me – I stomp’em! That’s a big gosh darn spider – you’d better find it!!!! 😦

      • 16. words4jp  |  October 10, 2014 at 2:21 pm

        no worries – i can handle it:) she needs her beauty rest anyway – do not want to interrupt that……:)

    It will now live to catch more bugs for you. (The take outside is a good move)

    You had me laughing with this one…my daughters wouldn’t even have lasted long enough to take a picture before running away screaming. I don’t know why, but they are deathly afraid of spiders. Great post. 🙂

      Well normally I would call for a guy:) but there were no guys to be had and my big hairy beast could care less. So, I am a big girl, I can conquer the imposter…….the jury is still out in that ….to be continued. 😉

        Maybe he will make another appearance to see if you’ve got the stuff to take on the beast. 🙂

      Thank you. Let me just say he or she is still missing and I am not all too thrilled about it. The Pee wanted nothing to do with it and the boys are gone. I mean, really, when is a guy around when you need one??? 😉
