Unsightly isn't it?
The next day, I awoke feeling the wrath of grapes, and after deciding that the only cure for my pounding head was sunshine, I ventured out to the front garden, in my pajamas... and after a few minutes, this caught my eye,
crawling through the grass....
With its gazzilion beady eyes...
Looking at me.....
There is a percentage of the worlds population that will never visit Australia because of this kind of spider... The word deadly is often thrown around, and that puts people off.
Now I am no spider specialist, and here in Australia we have a lot of nasty looking spiders, so the general rule is, if it looks like a funnel web you put it in a jar and take it to your local council.....which in Australian, means you Pound it to the depths of hell from whence it came with a large sturdy shoe.
I know it isn't a common house spider.. We have tons of those.
I can not bear to destroy all their hard work.
But not this spider....No...... Look at it....
there will be none of that in my backyard, and do you know what? I don't even know with any conviction whether this guy was a funnel web or a trap door, and I can not articulate to you exactly how much of a fuck, I couldn't give....or how many times Steve Irwin rolls around in his grave.
RIP deadly looking spider.
You are now comfortably balled up in tissues, in the bin,... You know.....just in case any of your beady eyed relatives stumbled upon your remains and vowed revenge.
I have also done my pennance, as I spent the following seven hours with the awful sensation that something was crawling on me, because that my friends, is the price you pay for killing a spider..
Would you have killed it?
