I'm close to where this happened. There are thin webs everywhere with little buggers floating about on thin webs. While it is interesting that so
many appear at once, I vote we burn Australia to bits then sink it in the sea.
Dont get me wrong, spiders are important.. Apparently... I can't stand them and while these little ones are not too terrifying it just so happens
that this morning when I went to pay my bills papers gripped in my hand, but then something extra touched my hand. I look down and a vivid orangey
brown huntsman was on my hand. Naturally like the big manly bloke I am, I squealed and did my best impression of being electrocuted in a bath to get
this nightmare off me. It dropped to the floor and I tried to wheel away in my chair as fast as I can like the manly bloke I am. It must have been
sleeping, or only just out of hibernation to be that colour and was slow, which in huntsman terms is about 88MPH.
I grabbed a can of spray and built all my strength enough to go back into the room where it was, I sprayed and watched him bath in the poison like it
was some kind of Lynx effects spray which managed to anger him. His back legs though started to seize up (boo hoo so sad) and with all my manly
blokiness I threw a shoe at him and it landed on him, I heard a crunch, then my strength gave out. I had to leave the room.
That's when my cleaner lady turned up at the door. She had a newspaper from the front letter box she had brought in and tried to give it to me. Like
the manly bloke I am I screamed at her 'Nooooo drop it on the floor now!'. So she did and asked what was wrong. I had to fill her in that I'd just
experienced an 'incident' and could she just kindly jump on the newspaper a few hundred times. She picks it up and just gives it a shake and looks at
me like I'm missing testicals. Feeling somewhat de-bloked, I watched as she popped the paper on the shoe box. Then she went and tidied up the
spider. Obviously now I can't wear shoes because of where she put the paper I will be convinced another huntsman will have taken up residence in my
TLDR, burn Australia.
