I am embarassingly prissy and wimpy.
Sure I may like to fight and cuss and handle pythons, but this scene just unfolded in my bedroom:

I'm sitting on my futon bed, watching "Rescue Me" with the iBook at my side, when a GIANT MOTHERFUCKING SPIDER LANDS ON MY FUCKING ARM!!!!!!!!

I scream and starting jumping up and down while flailing. After what seems like forever, I run off the futon. I do not see the GIANT MOTHERFUCKING SPIDER on my futon. I resume flailing and strip, because the GIANT MOTHERFUCKING SPIDER might be lurking inside my shirt or something.

I'm wearing different clothes now and the offending one's are in the wash. I'm sleeping on the basement couch tonight.

6. bless your heart.
it's a normal reaction. 'cause spiders can hurt you if they are poisonous. Spiders don't bother me too much, unless they get on me like that one got on you.

7. I'd say, 'There's the chink in the armor'
But it's un-PC to say "armor" anymore. x(

9. The other chink is I can be dropped to the ground instantly with a kick
to one of my shins. I'm not saying which one.

8. "I'm sleeping on the basement couch tonight."
I'm sure spidey's gone back to his nest and is cavorting with hundreds of stickly, clinging spiders just his size or bigger. And you know where that nest is located, don't you?

42. There were no spider incidents in the basement.
I slept soundly on the super comfy couches. Anyway, our basement is totally finished off, not buggy at all. It's like a big underground playground for drunk adults.

spiders are scary
my cat just loves having bouts with really big ass spiders out here in the desert. Every time I squish a spider, I feel so bad about it and I have to ask for forgivness :(

I don't feel the same about cockroaches though :)

26. LOL!
A woman who has no fear of snakes totally loses it over a spider!

They are usually gentle, non-venomous and respond to affection. Not to mention amazingly cool.

Spiders rock! One of my screen names is Spiderbrother....

33. OK you are to much for me
What man could resist a woman herpatologist who keeps lizards and flails around and strips at the very thought of something with eight legs?

Should I ask her to marry me? Probably not. Apart from the sexual issues, she won't like my spiders and my fascination with cockroaches would freak her out......

34. Hissing cockroaches and giant millipedes are actually pretty cool.
The cockroaches that normally invade houses and spiders are not cool.

We are almost a perfect match. Not quite but pretty close......

Since you can't do spiders or roaches (every man needs a hobby) how do you feel about weapons?

I'm down with weapons.

I didn't remember.

Should you ever find yourself catless (or lizardless, for that matter), remember my advice.

40. Eh, there's nothing scarier than a giant motherfucking spider
scientific studies have shown this. And when one lands on your fucking arm is the most terrifying experience known to man (and woman).

Come on. Being scared of a spider is no excuse for bad apostrophe usage!!! :evilgrin:
:hug: I feel your pain though about the spider.
I was once taking a drink of a soda and a spider had crawled into it. It freaked me out and I could never drink out of that cup again.

52. Don't feel bad...
my wife is friends with a former Green Beret and all-around tough-ass who is ABSOLUTELY freaked out by spiders. If somebody put a tarantula in his house, he'd probably shoot it with a 12-gauge, furniture be damned.

For my wife, it's roaches. She says it's something about the way they move.
