I like spiders.... at a distance! LOL. I can't really say much though because I used to have pet rats and people liked to freak out over them sometimes too
I heard the rose tarantulas are fairly docile but I might be remembering wrong. We sometimes get tarantulas that make their way into our apartment from the outside, whatever kind those are, they will chase you lol.

When i was teaching i once took some kids (sorry, pupils) to a science fair. I had to eat crickets, hold giant cockroaches etc. No problem. Would i hell as like hold the Rose tarantula though! Much to the amusement of the kids and creepy crawly guy.........he kept saying they are the friendliest type of spider and not a problem.
