The Rubber that nearly erased me: a reblog.

A funny post for Flashback Friday, although it felt nearly fatal at the time!


Just a short post to explain my reply to Colin’s comment on my previous offering.

We were sorting out the attic getting ready to move house, and it was one of those really hot and muggy days, so we were stripped down to our underwear. Ok yeah, not a pretty sight, so I’ll move quickly on.

Hubby found a suitcase and tossed it down to me. I could say it was the heat affecting my brain, but the result was being unable to get my breath, massive palpitations preventing me from speech, and such a hike in blood pressure, I honestly thought I was going to have a heart attack and die on the spot.
Inside, was the biggest, hairiest spider I have ever seen in my life.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I was hoping to invite you over to my house sometime, considering that you and I live in the same city. Now I have second thoughts – we should just meet at a coffee shop where there are no spiders. I don’t know CPR.

    Some of those toy spiders look very realistic.

    I did a version of this today with some flotsam I was certain was a snake! Of course, the time I thought there were bats flying around my head in the dark was……accurate, unfortunately. Thwapping sounds will always send me into a panic now.

    A spider has taken residence in my front door. I can see it in the gap between the door and the door frame when I open the door. It’s not a big hairy one but big enough!

  5. Spiders are probably as scared as we are when we come face to face!

    That would have led me to go shrieking as far away as possible!!
