I am deathly afraid of spiders... you don't understand... I'm REALLY afraid of spiders... I am usually able to not burst into tears at the sight of one... but if they gang up on me... The funny thing is I like spiders and I don't want to kill them (then there would be more bugs!) but when they are in my territory they need to leave.... usually I spend a good 20 minutes attempting to throw a sandal against the wall (or wherever) to hit it or get someone else to catch it and put it outside... but with this handy invention I can grab it safely at a distance and toss the sucka outside... now my space is mine and he can keep his life... we all win!
