Last week I had an unwanted visitor in the bathroom. It's surreal to see a tarantula come around the corner headed straight for you. Of course I ran out of the bathroom and yelled at Tom to come and get rid of it.
As Tom took a look at the spider he says, "aren't you going to take a picture?
Tom scooped it up into the dustpan and threw it outside.
I heard from a few others that they'd also had tarantulas show up in their bathrooms or right outside their doors last week. Apparently, a combination of heat and rain brings them out. We've been here almost three years and this was our first run-in with such a huge critter in our home. Seriously, this thing was bigger than the frog we had come inside.
Well, now I know when tarantula season is and I'll be ready next time...maybe!
