The Huntsman Spider...

This is one of the most horrific stories ever published on this blog. You have been warned.
While at the playgroup, I happen to stumble on a LARGE shadow in the dark gap between the fridge and the kitchen cupboard. One of the Aussie mothers said that it looked like a Huntsman spider. So we decided to brush him out to the backyard. But he was motionless. So we reckoned he was dead and dried. Still,carefully, we managed to brush him on a dust pan while poking him to see his reaction. Still nothing...

We flipped him on his back in the dust pan and suddenly, my friend and I barely managed to decipher it. But we looked at each other and we knew. We understood. The "Made in China" label was not very impressive actually but more embarrassing! The quality and the details of this spider were impressive! A story that will linger for a while in the air...If you listen carefully, you can still hear Michael, my husband,  laughing in the distance.
