So I'm sitting in the living room, taking my 433,948 nap of the day, when Momma walks in and SCREAMS. I jump up, thinking there's a squirrel in the house! But no. It's just a big old spider on the wall.
Momma is very afraid of spiders. She thinks they're icky and she doesn't like how they move. Normally Daddy swoops in to save the day, but he's at work. So Momma starts throwing shoes at it! And we're not just talking flippy flops here, pups. We're talking sneakers and boots and whatever shoe she can get her hands on. I'm looking at her and thinking "Momma's done lost her MIND!"
She finally hits it with a shoe (she was screaming this whole entire time cause it started to run. Well DUH Momma, you're throwing SHOES at it, of COURSE it's gonna run!) It left a really nasty streak on the wall. I offered to lick it clean, but she was having none of it. She took her long dish washing wand and cleaned it up cause she didn't want to touch it, even after it was DEAD.
My crazy Momma, spider killer extraordinaire.

Oh my!! My mommy woulda done the same thing!! Once, I was napping very peacefully on her lap while she was computin', and she caught a glimpse of something over her right shoulder. Well, you guessed it, it was a big ol' brown spider on the sofa right behind her!! She flipped me outta her lap and I hit the deck! She went all bonkers on that thing. He didn't stand a chance! After he was squished, she vacuumed him up just to be sure!
Pssst. One time momma spray starched a tranchula! YIKES
EEEEEEEEEEW HD, a real live tarantula!?!?! Momma would probably pass out! But she says bleach works pretty good on wood spiders. BLECH!
