Ack! Spider! Part Deux

Why does this keep happening to me?  Six months ago a wolf spider freaked me out during my shower, and today, well a relaxing bath just isn’t that relaxing when this guy jumps out of the shower curtain as you are cleaning the tub.  He was relocated to the front porch in a cup that he refuses to vacate.  Enjoy your new home spidey, and stay outside where you belong.

Ack!  Spider!

 The warm water ran down my back, rinsing the shampoo from my hair.  I turned and picked up my bottle of conditioner.  As I lived it from the shelf an enormous wolf spider fell from the bottle and onto the shower wall.  I jumped, then started processing options.  Squish it.  Bad luck.  Rinse it down the drain.  Dear God, it could land on me or crawl up my foot.

Then I looked closer.  The little guy was slipping on the shower wall, his tiny hairy legs trying to get purchase while his mandibles flexed.  He was scared too.  I sighed and in my very vulnerable state looked for something to catch him in.  Shave gel top?  Perfect.  I coerced the spider into the lid and once he was firmly captured I opened the shower curtain and flung top and spider into the sink.

Once I was dry and covered, I took Mr. Spider in his lid to the front door and set him outside in the plant.  Good luck with the snow tomorrow, and stay out of my bathroom!
