Today was my mother-in-laws birthday. She had decided that she wanted a sausage and pepperoni pizza from Tony Bella Vista's...the yummiest pizza! I was looking forward to it all day. And what happened on the way over there? Chaos...maybe caused by me. Mario and I picked up said mother-in-law. Drove back to our house to pick up sister-in-law. Then headed over to Tony Bella Vista's. Sis and I were in the back seat chit chatting when I noticed a little white spider on the outside of the know how I love spiders. It was fine. It was small and more importantly, it was on the outside of the window. I was watching him crawl around. I was rather calm but had already decided that I would exit through the other door. Then for some reason I took a closer look...and realized that it was indeed on the inside of the window.

Screaming. Trying to climb onto sister-in-laws side of car. Seat belt holding me hostage. Spider running around like crazy, probably scared shitless because of crazy screaming lady. Sister-in-law arm holding me in place. Her laughing hysterically at me and pointing at little spider. Husband rolling down window trying to help the poor guy escape. Me screaming to roll it up before the wind blows it in. Sister still laughing. No roll the window down. Mother-in-law yelling because she has no idea what the hell is going on in the back seat. Finally the little spider decides it's too much and goes out the window. A little more screaming to roll up the window. Maybe I got a little out of hand. Maybe I bit sister-n-laws arm a little in my panic ridden state. We pull into a parking spot. Sister-in-law rolls out of the car doubled over laughing. I calmly exit through her door. We go inside and have some awesome pizza.

PS...I did apologize about the gnawing on her arm. It was merely a stress bite.


  1. Wow and I thought I hated spiders...LOL. I think this quite a rational reaction to a spider invading your personal space. If I wasn't so scared of spiders, I would have probably been laughing like your sis-in-law.

  2. yeah I was a little embarrassed when I thought about it. I was fine with the spider when I thought it was outside. However, the second I realized it was inside, I flipped out. I"m glad you feel it was a rational reaction...I thank you!


Talk to me...
