Lexie's Spidey Terror

If you don't like spiders, I'm giving you fair warning that there are two photos below that you're going to want to scroll right past....















Keep going..........









































Ok, here it comes,



This is the spider that was hanging out on the fence in my sisters backyard.






Yes, that a real spider. It was huge! Fi and I encountered one like this many years ago in our backyard, and Fi said it was so big, it was smoking a cigar! Here's another shot of it:


Disgusting, right?

Ok, so my sister has a massive fear of spiders, hates the things. After we go inside and tell her about the one hanging out in her backyard, Luciano pretends he has it in his hand (like he would ever really do that) and freaks her out about it. She starts totally screaming and crying and having a total melt down. Once she calms down, what I showed her was just a photo....and this is her reaction after she's calmed down)

She pretty much freaked out, poor thing. But even when she's screaming in sheer terror, she still looks hot! Sorry Lexie, no more spidey scares, ok?

As a fellow aracnophobe, I can totally feel Lexie's pain! I sympathize and suggest getting a chemical called "spider not" which is a spider repellent that keeps them away. Especially good if you have problems with them weaving in front of your doorway or dropping on your head. I actually braved myself to look at these pictures and I can feel my heart already starting to race, even though it's just a picture. It truly is terrifying! I sympathize with you Lexie! :)

Lanie, I know how much you hate spiders, so I'm impressed you were able to look at the photos. I will tell Lexie about Spider Not. Thanks for the tip!
