Don’t Read if You’re Squeamish


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 ☮️
