Gender Bender

I showed my beloved this picture of a very disturbing looking spider that my son found near the basketball hoop, expecting him to have the same reaction as me. I expected him to be equally disgusted and horrified. It obviously looks full of poison and angry. And what about those large, long limbs and those marks? Also, where is the gigantic web this thing lives in? This ain’t no Charlotte. That much I know. Maybe we’d google it together and find a similar creature on Nat Geo or something. Or at the very least he’d want to “get rid” of it. Here’s the pic…what pops into your head?

Tell the truth, aren’t you a little itchy looking at it? Here’s what he said,
“that grass isn’t doing so well.”
That grass isn’t doing so well??
Alrighty then.
Goodnight Wilbur.

    At least you have a potential spider-killer. My husband is as afraid of them as I am. But I think that is a Garden spider – real name – and not poisonous. I don’t care, it is making me shiver.

    I guess I’m the only one who thinks it’s pretty…. although I’d feel differently if it were inside the house instead of outside the house.

        I like what you did there! When they’re in the house, I don’t care WHAT they look like because I don’t look at them closely enough before I smoosh them! LOL But when they’re outside, I figure they’re in their own domain and I try to give them their space. And if they’re not too big or too fast, I try to look at them a little bit and admire them.
