Serial Killer in the making?

01 October 2007

Do I feel bad? Nope. Do I feel like a serial killer in the making? Nope. Was I scared? You bet!

This morning, after JD had left the house: A massive big spider stared at me from the kitchen sink. I yelped, jumped, hyperventilated and then realised I would need to kill the beast. It was him or me. Despite my fears, I managed to capture the animal underneath a glass. But then what? No way in the world I was going to lift it up on a piece of cardboard and throw it out of the window!

And so I did the only thing left to me: I went to the cupboard and took out a bottle of bleach. Poured the bleach into the sink whilst lifting the glass ever so slightly. The bleach poured under the glass and I quickly put the glass down again. What followed wasn't pretty. The spider was clearly in distress but my fear of spiders is greater than my compassion for them. And so I watched as the arachnoid struggled with the chlorine fumes and eventually shriveled into a little ball of miserable legs. I left it for another 5 minutes and then poured boiling water in the sink, flushing the spider away. Must make sure he is dead.

I always read about serial killers who started when they were kids by out pulling spiders' legs out and enjoying it. Maybe I will be a serial killer when I grow up.

JD. who will catch spiders and then walk all 4 floors down to put it outside, rather than just chuck itt out of the window, was not pleased, to say the least...

But at least the sink was nice and clean!!

O, wat een monster.Ik zou ook bang zijn geweest, maar ik ben al bang voor de kleintjes. Laat staan voor deze.
Omdat je een foto hebt gemaakt, kunnen jij en anderen hem tenminste herdenken als de killer spider.
