Spider Woman Underoos

Adam mentions shaking out his clothes looking for cockroaches.

A couple years ago, I dumped out my laundry hamper on the floor to sort my clothes and this freakin' gigantic spider crawled out of my darks. I believe it was a wolf spider. And she had all her children clinging to her back!

I'm not normally bothered by spiders. They're imminently smashable. Heck, I'm the one my friends usually con into killing their eight-legged residents.

But this one freaked me out. Until she and her brood met the bottom of a nearby dress shoe. Best $75 I ever spent. Of course she was one of the twitchy ones, whose leg went seizing off across the floor after I killed her. And all those babies left a gross paste on the sole of my shoe.

Mind you, the University of Arizona says I should have kept her, but what are you going to do when Ms. Spider and her billions and billions of babies run out of your clothes and you've just rolled out of bed?
