Our house seems to attract spiders, especially in the winter. They're big, brown, harmless things.
|Spiderman and Captain America take on a tub-dwelling spider.|
The girls got in and we filled the bath with water, when Sophie started complaining. "There's something in the water! There's something in the water!"
She started pulling at long strands, which at first I thought were long hairs. But then I realized nobody in our house had hair THAT long.
And the color was strange. At some angles the strands looked black, at other angles, silver. And they were sticky.
And then, horror of horrors, another spider came bobbing to the surface of the water. Already drowned, poor thing, but that saved me having to kill him.
I fished out more spider webs from the front of the tub.
They were tricky to remove because they were invisible until you removed them from the water.
Now we have to do a spider check AND a spider web check before we get in the tub.
And maybe I should clean my bathtub more often....
