Last night, I had a dream. In this dream, I had pulled all the stuff out of my bathroom and cleaned the floor (a dream indeed). I had left it overnight to dry or…I don’t know. When I woke up in my dream and went into the bathroom in the morning, the area around the toilet was all filled with huge cobwebs and crickets that had been caught and wrapped up by the spider.
I figured that a spider who made such huge webs and caught such large prey must surely still be around, so I looked around to know what area to be most afraid of until I could convince myself or someone else to dispose of the spider.
When I found him, I nearly had a heart attack. The spider was about the size of a baby’s fist once you factor the legs in. But the truly creepy part for me was that his pinchers were as long as his body. Now that I’m awake, I know that can’t be possible because he’d be front-heavy and always tipping forward. You don’t think about *that* in dreams, I promise.
When I woke up this morning, I was scared to go into the bathroom! Finally made myself check it out and it’s as dirty as ever with no spiders. Hurrah! First time I’ve ever been glad that my bathroom was dirty.
