    Got a scary/funny spider story? Share!

    Mine is when I was closing the chicken coop door, a spider "jumped" off the top of the door onto my chest. The body was bigger than a quarter! Needless to say, one of us had to die and obviously I'm still alive... UNLESS, the spider really is a criminal mastermind that hacked my BYC account!

    Rules:
    Keep it appropriate
    No cussing please.

    For our 40th anniversary the Princess and I went to Hawaii . We had stayed at the resort where "blue Lagoon" was filmed for our 25th so we decided to revisit. Somewhere over the span of 15 years the place had fallen into disrepair. We wanted a picture by the cabin where we had spent our 25th so we made our way there through the bananas and shrubs. She had me go towards the door for a picture. I turned around and there inches from my face was a web and a very aggravated 'banana spider' bouncing back and forth. I squealed like a little girl and exited stage left. [​IMG]

    :lau I was completely paralyzed and couldn't do anything... I lost my voice... Thankfully, adrenaline caused my arm to quickly brush the spider off of me.
