"Wonderful!" I thought. We've not had many spiders in the house, but last week I took a mesh pan lid out of the dishwasher to find a 2 inch wide spider sitting on the other side of it. The news that we had more of them infesting the house did not fill me with joy.
I carefully sat up to one side of it and took a closer look. It was huge, a bit larger even than the monster I had to get rid of last week.
And then it rotated in my direction, flicked it's legs so little knives came out, and swung directly at my face. And I woke up with a little scream.
And now I itch all over.
