Last night, while sitting by myself downstairs watching “Wanted” with Angelina Jolie, that cool black dude that plays the head of the tech department at Wayne Enterprises, and a host of other people you’ve never heard of, this crawled across the floor:
In my younger years, regardless of the location, I would have instantly called for someone larger than myself to come kill whatever creepy, crawly thing I found around my home.
However, these days I have pity on the little critters. I mean, they just want to eat and have sex; just like me. So, I tend to cut them some slack…unless they are inside my home!
This little guy ended up floating in the commode after I shmooshed him in a heavily padded wad of toilet paper.
First thing this morning, I tried to figure out what he/she is. I mean, anything with cool markings like this has to be either A) One bad dude, or B) Pretending like it’s one bad dude.
I think it’s human nature, when trying to identify the unknown, to gravitate towards the dramatic and thus, the closest thing I can find to it, is the “Brown Widow,” shown here:
And yes, they are a poisonous cousin to the “Black Widow.” I think this is the Bollywood version of the Black Widow actually (sorry Romi, you have me on a Bollywood kick).
These guys have apparently just started moving into N. Georgia, having come up from the coast, so who knows.
Black, brown, whatever. I’m breakin’ out the spray this weekend!
