Who would have thought something made of rubber would make me so petrified, I almost had a heart attack!
I kid you not.
We were clearing out the roof in our first house ready for our move and Hubby threw down an old suitcase (which wasn’t ours by the way but the previous owners so just goes to show we didn’t use the roof much) for disposal.
The huge spider in it had me paralyzed in terror, and it was hard to breathe. My chest hurt and I couldn’t get my words out to tell Hubby what was wrong. The only thing stopping me from hitting the floor was the door frame I was leaning against.
Hubby was down the ladder so fast and by my side, Guinness would have been proud.
It was a kids rubber spider but so lifelike in that fraction of a second in transit from roof to floor.
We laugh about it now and although I can tolerate the little ones, my blood still runs cold at the sight of a biggie.
