Yes I’m a spider magnet. Even though I’ve been TERRIBLY arachnophobic since forever, but spiders don’t ignore me either. There really aren’t much spiders where I live. Let alone the big ones. But then suddenly god knows how Godzilla sized spiders started sitting on my head .
It started when I was 10. GIANT PALM SIZED spider entered classroom. Everyone screamed. And it disappeared. Later it was found sitting on my shirt. Among 40 other kids. I still get amazed how I managed not to faint.
4 years later, one afternoon I got in our car with mom. Something tingly felt on my neck. Mom looked petrified. A GIANT THICK PALM SIZED spider was on top of my head. Mom grabbed it with my handkerchief and threw it. SHE HAS GOT SUPERPOWERS. As the windows were closed the spider fell inside the car only. My screams shook up everyone. Our driver probably got a heart attack and roughly stopped the car. POLICE CAME OVER. Yeahh….. 😉 :p
2 years later, once I was home alone at night. Violent storm and heavy rain going on outside. Being super excited, I had opened all the doors and windows of the room and was happily watching TV. Suddenly something heavy fell on my head. It crawled down my hand and hid below the bed. Another HUGE THICK BROWN SPIDER. I grabbed my mobile rushed out and locked the room. Sat trembling the whole night. Called up mom dad and cried for an hour. The TV was on till my parents came over next morning.
I don’t know why among all people ‘giant-est’ spiders always land on my head. Yes I’m surrounded by many trees at home. Had beautiful gardens at school. But then so do many people. But yes after so many spider encounters, I’m less afraid now 😉 😀
