Don’t Read if You’re Squeamish
Time: middle of the night, about 2:30 a.m
Scene: my bathroom
Prop: insulated plastic cup with ice and straw
I get up to go to the bathroom and get a drink of water. I keep the insulated cup on the counter.
Anyway, I’m still half asleep, and take a big drink of ice water through the straw.
I feel a lump of something in my mouth, and it’s not a piece of ice. I don’t swallow the water.
I spit into the sink.
Out comes a…
Yes, I had a spider in my mouth!
It wasn’t a giant one, but about the size of my pinkie fingernail.
I go Ewwww!
I get a tissue and get the spider onto it, putting the spider & tissue on the counter.
Then I go get fresh water to rinse my mouth out with.
I didn’t want to drown the spider down the drain, you know…I like spiders…just not in my mouth!
I go back to bed.
This morning I look for the spider, and find him still on the counter.
I take his picture, then try to catch him to put outside, but he’s too fast.
He’s still in there …
Here’s his picture which is very much enlarged.
I wonder which one of us was more surprised? haha 🙂
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
