As I walked up the stairs to the kitchen from the family room tonight, I nearly stepped on a gargantuan spider! I shrieked and asked Stephen to kill it. He said "Oh boy!" and admitted that it was a bit big and that it creeped him out. A-ha!! He finally admitted that the spiders in the house are HUGE. He said it was only huge because of the legs. Duh! All spiders are small when you just count the bodies.
Anyway, the spider has been properly smooshed and flushed.
