FutureMrsHodgy:  I guess you won’t want to see my Hallowe’en wreath with the giant spider hanging from the top then, eh?

Many people are afraid of spiders.  Keep in mind though that those big spiders eat other spiders and bugs so they really are your friends.

FutureMrsHodgy:  You’re definitely not alone. I’m 30… and the other day there was a dime-sized spider on my thigh… I had a total meltdown. My husband works nights a lot, and it just so happened to be one of those nights… Before I could go back downstairs, he cleaned the entire main floor… vacuumed the floor and all of the furniture, he even moved the couch and vacuumed underneath (scratching the hardwood, which he’s a little upset about!) 

But i have an intense fear of spiders… I can’t even look at pictures of those things… 

Way to get it though! I hate them, but I also can’t kill them. I’m just a general coward.

FutureMrsHodgy:  I’m right there with you! I’m too scared to even kill them because that would require me to get CLOSE to it! Nope, nope, nope!

Spiders give me the “ick” but I can’t help getting close and trying to identify them. It’s kind of a thrill, like getting close to a crocodile (even though I know the vast majority of spiders are completely harmless and way more scared of me than I am of them). I know it’s scary to imagine, but try to let the little spider just go on their way. They’ll keep away much worse creepy critters, and you don’t have to go through the trauma of trying to kill them. Now feet, that’s something that icks me out bigtime! (and you can’t just smash those and make them go away.) Flip-flops are the bane of my existence.
