For the record I do not do bugs, I scream, have heart palpitations, I call out for my husband or whoever is available (even my children) to dispose of the pesty beasts! Listen, I'm a Jersey girl use to city bugs, you know basic little ones you can kill with a can. Jersey bugs are reasonably sized they can not stand up and attack you, but these Georgia bugs are like aliens! If your brave enough to come at them, they will stop, look at you and chase you down until your hiding somewhere in a room or a closet! From those gigantic Limo sized water bugs to that black massive beetle, I can't take it!
Which reminds me of the time I was using the ladies room inside a large stall at the baseball park. Quietly as I'm going, I gingerly turned to my left and next to me on the wall was a stick and I remembered thinking wow, how does someone glue a stick on a cement wall...... When all of a sudden I realized that stick had legs and it started to move, I'd never seen anything so freakish in my life! That stick was so big, I thought it was going to stand up and say (with a Brooklyn accent), "Ey how you doin'?" I forgot what I was in the middle of doing and ran or maybe even jumped, I don't know, I had an out of body experience because when I gathered myself I was on the other side of that stall and accidentally had an accident on myself in the process.
Anywho, I sucked up my fear for my fellow blogging buddies and I braved this shot because, well I had to, look at this spider! I left my home early in the morning and right outside my door this is who I discovered Charlotte!! When I got back in the afternoon she was still working! I got all up close and personal with her and God knows there must be some name for this type of spider but, I don't know I was just blown away by her sheer magnificence!!! I mean this spider looked just like Charlotte from "Charlotte's Web", look at the zig zag word like lines she created! Notice how I just assume that this spider is a girl? I think it's because she was so meticulous, creative, diligent and most of all Fabulous!!!
Let's just face it, if this Charlotte had of been Charles, this work would not have been done. Charles would have been in a dark recessed corner somewhere finishing off a nap when I got home:)
