Spiders freak me out. Big spiders freak me out. Jumping spiders freak me out the most!!!
We have some pretty big ones in Arizona - I have seen hand sized tarantulas in Strawberry, all over the rocks around the creek. We went there to swim
in the creek and I saw them, but they weren't moving around and didn't come up on top of the rocks where we were, and other families were there, and
I didn't want to scare the kids, so I kept quiet. Then, my son was in the water, and saw one of them because he looked up towards us, and he
screamed like a girl! We never went back there.
I currently have a truce with a small yellow spider that is living under the bookshelf in our bedroom. He can stay there as long as he doesn't make
any sudden moves or get near the bed. I had a similar truce with a different yellow spider in the kitchen, a couple of years ago, but he grew big and
got more agressive, after a while, and did not stick to the terms.
When I lived in Colorado, there were these small hairy hunting spiders called wolf spiders that jump super fast, usually straight at you. Those were
awful! Encountering one that jumps at you and is big, like that video, would send me screaming out the door. I could absolutely not handle that in
