For the most part spiders don't bother me. There are some that are really scary looking, but for the most part if they don't bother me I don't bother them. "But Vanessa some spiders can kill people" Yeah and some people can kill people, too. I welcome spiders. They eat the other less desirable creepy crawlies. My favorite spiders are jumping spiders. Their giant eyes make them extra adorable.
My and my assistant were spending a normal Friday night at home. I mean it was midnight, and he was hanging cabinets while I turned the TV up increasingly louder so I could hear it over his power tools, but for us this is normal. I hear a call from the next room, "Vanessa! Pause that and come here." So I come running, thinking the worst...Jack finally figured out how to get into the Bearded Dragon tank. He goes look!!! He points at the jumping spider. (Yep he knows how to whoo a girl, and ladies he is all mine). I get all giddy with excite me and go, and then "Nooooo!!! My camera is in the truck!!!" We trap him by scooting him onto the back of a paper plate. My assist runs to the truck while I stage on the back of the plate balanced on the corner of the Christmas Ornament container (it was directly under the brightest light on the first floor).
This is what I got. I told him for being such a great model that he was welcome to live under the couch.
