But Do Spiders Even Like Opera?


So there was this thing on the kitchen floor the other day and it looked just like one of those spider rings that kids have and I noticed it but assumed it was harmless because Lulu had one of those rings the other day so I kept walking and then IT CRAWLED AWAY FROM ME!! Toys do not generally crawl away. Or if they do they sing doodleydoodledoo while they do it and you know it's a toy and not scary. But this was apparently a real spider. That looked like one of those HOLYCRAPHUGE spider rings. So I screamed, and Husbandguy got all pissed off at me. Here's why: I don't know how to scream. It confused him - the noise I made. He thought I was singing and was Super Annoyed that I actually needed him to kill a spider. Apparently people don't generally sing opera when they're afraid of something creepy and crawly springing at them and biting their heads off with their 8-legged spidery-ness. Who knew?

You had me with the title.

(Spiders down bite with their legs!)

Oh, girl. I'll teach you how to scream properly- the kind of scream that you would have heard in a slasher flick in the 1940's, followed by a faint. Sound good? This is useful for both spiders and that first downhill on big roller coasters.

Rene - I think HG would have preferred a Mariah Carey kind of sound.

45aA - It was planning on springing with its legs and biting my head with its spidery-ness. I am certain of that.

Thanks for the offer, PSP, but it won't help. I've tried. The best I can muster, even on the steepest of rickety old rollercoasters is a pitiful little aaaaaa... Usually it sounds like I'm asking a question.
