Spider Update

I have no idea why or how Facebook chooses the photos it does from this blog to feature there, but the close-up photo last time of my unwanted visitor

Spider Close-up

sure got lots of attention. Thanks to all my Facebook friends for their comments and suggestions.

The latest news is that on Tuesday or Wednesday morning, I stumbled bleary-eyed into the kitchen only to discover a critter looking much like the one in the photo hanging out in the sink. OK! I’m awake now!

While it looked a little smaller than the one I’d seen previously, I really wasn’t interested in getting out a ruler to check. You can imagine.

But no matter, it looked like it wasn’t having much luck climbing the vertical, apparently slick (even for it) walls of the basin, and since that happened to be the basin with the disposal at the bottom, well, you can see where this is going.

I flicked on the spray head and after a bit of a struggle, got a now drowned or drowning spider into the disposal and…

Spider smoothie, anyone?

Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, maybe this is the end of this tale. Glue traps are out (thanks, Busch), just in case my eyeball measurement was correct and this one was smaller than the one(?) seen before. Cats are “out” too (thanks Betsy, Jackie, and anyone else I missed) but only in the sense that there hasn’t been time for one (I know someone’s going to say “or more”; that’s another reason) to be “in.”
