Well, I got two good brisk walks in today, I did a brisk pace on the elliptical for 20 minutes, I'm going to do some upper body ST while I watch Silver Linings Playbook in a few minutes and all I can think about is Boris on the ceiling (Boris is my name for spiders).
He hasn't moved in over an hour which is fine with me. As long as spiders, any kind of bug really, stay put when they are anywhere near me, I'm okay. If it starts running, we're gonna have a problem.
I was thinking that I could get the step ladder and hold a cup or something under him to catch him and let him outside (I am a kind person deep down). Let's think about this, even on a step ladder, that thing is going to be above my face as I try to get him to land in a cup. No good could come of that. If he drops anywhere beside the cup, there will be screaming and there will be injuries.
Next thought, I could just leave him be, spiders after all are good, they eat other insects. But I won't be able to sleep tonight knowing he has free reign of the house while I sleep. Because of course since this is the only spider I see, it's the only one in the house right?! Rrrright. (that was sarcasm).
Then the next thought was about poor Jeff Hanneman, founder of the metal group Slayer. He just DIED from liver failure, possibly from a SPIDER BITE! So I'm in quite a pickle Dick (from the movie Fun With Dick and Jane.)
DH won't be home till tomorrow. Oh where is John Goodman when I need him (Arachnophobia). And yes, I did actually sit through that movie when an out-of-town friend visited years ago and insisted we rent it. It was extremely difficult on me.... and those around me!
Maybe I'll just close the door to this room and stick a towel under the door. That should work right?
Wish me luck!
