My latest low vision moment.....
Last night, naked as the day I was born, I went to get into the shower. There was this big black thing in the bottom of the shower near the drain. This time of year I have a lot of spiders in my apartment, and they give me the willies.
I often find them in the shower for some reason.
This big black thing was bigger than most of my eight-legged friends, but based on past experience, I assumed he was just the grand daddy of the clan.
There was no way I was going to share my shower with him, and he was so big I was afraid to try to squash him with a paper towel.
I went in search of bug spray under the sink, but I'm out. I thought maybe cleaning chemicals would be enough to subdue the beast so that I could kill him without him getting away from me. There's no way I'd sleep thinking he was on the loose in the apartment.
So, I leaned into the shower armed with everything from Clorox to Windex. I squirted him with all barrels. He didn't move.
I went to get the paper towel to scoop up his dead carcus and what did I discover? I'd just successfully killed the cap to the shampoo!
