Schrödinger's Pussy
Observing a box has never been this much fun
It's not dead until you check.

So, I'm sitting here, minding my own business when I see something dark making its way across the living room carpet. Thinking "Oh, I hope we don't have carpenter ants, I go investigate. Not an ant. And since it was at a distance, I also misinterpreted its size. Spider. Thick, with black and grey striped legs joining together in the middle with not much of a body.

sooooo...I grab a paper towel and a slipper and proceed to do a tap dance. On the carpeting. So...I think it's dead. It hasn't come out yet and it's been a few hours. So...it's maybe dead. I can't bring myself to check.

So I IM my husband:
Debra: We can figure out what to do with it when you get home.
Brian: umm, I was hoping it would be gone by then
Debra: I bet you were.

When it comes to Schroedinger's Spider, I get no compassion.

I think I need to have an ax sitting next to the slipper when Brian gets home. Just to freak him out.

It was definitely part of our vows, albeit unspoken, that Mark is in charge of killing anything that crawls around out house that isn't our dogs. :-/

I'll trade you bugging wrangling duties. I'll come out and take care of all your spiders. You come annihilate the invading centipede hordes for me. Ewwwwwwwwwww! Centipedes!

Centipedes flush nicely...they think you're taking them for a poolside visit.

The spiders we have here will rear up on their creepy hind legs and waggle their front creepier feet at you, like they are saying "Bring it!"

Ew ew ew!!! and some more EW!!!

Living alone with the kids has mandated that I am "she who kills (or chases) the creatures that don't belong in the house". We have strict rules: outside - we respect our many-legged friends inside - DIE DIE DIE

I don't want to pass on my tendency to get squicked by my duties to the kids, let them develop their own phobias, so I put on my poker face whilst performing said duties...however on the inside I am screaming like a little wussy-girl.

I LOVED the image of the tap-dancing. I could see it!
