MY friend told me that in South America there are some.. just... HUGE spiders in the jungle.
On second thought I think I will add some personal spider run ins.
My uncle was camping in California and was bitten by a spider. THis spider was either the wolf spider or one with the same type of corrosive venom. It
attacked the fat in his leg and the doctors were tempted to amputate but my uncle protested. THey did save his leg but it is SWOLLEN... and it will
probably stay that way.. there is also still the possibility of infection.. even though much time has passed.
Connecticut has some big, scary and hairy spiders.
Once I was in the basement listening to the stereo when I saw a real beastie about the size of a fist... I totaly freaked out and ran screaming
upstairs to my grandfather. He smirked, (silly girl) and grabbed the windex.. then headed downstairs. I came with him... all cowered and bent over,
and pointed... he saw the spider and uttered something like.. Oooooo.. eeee.. ahhhh... then he started spraying it like a made man... while uttering..
omg, ewww.. ahhhhk.. and jumping up and down.. lol..
I was living in another heavily wooded area and we were known to have big, huge, hairy spider sightings there as well, it was a log cabin. I was in
the bathroom taking a shower when I saw a HUGE spidr out of the corner of my eye.. that's all it took I, ejected myself from the shower and the
bathroom post haste.. screaming like a girl and naked to boot. My roomate, after getting over the initial shock of my state.. went upstairs and
cautiously entered the bathroom.. being told where I saw the offending spider. Well he starts cracking up.. pulls me into the bathroom and shows me
the wood knot I had mistaken for my attacker. To say the least I was ambarrassed.
