House Rules

I don't have many rules that MUST be followed in my house but one of them was violated today.

I pulled back the curtain after taking a shower and saw a black spot on my mirror. Upon close inspection I discovered it was a nasty black spider. This would NOT be tolerated.

Rule: Crawly things serve a purpose and thus shall be left alone to do their duty in the ecosystem, so long as they are outside. Crawly things that enter my house are immediately on death row and shall be executed immediately upon discovery. (Unless they are really icky in which case I will scream until someone else kills them or freak out until I can discover some method for killing said crawly thing without touching it).

Today's offender was immediately met with several blasts of windex that caused him to twitch, slide down the mirror, and then be squashed by the paper towel I used to absorb the cleaner that had collected in the gap at the bottom of the mirror.

...I did get a clear mirror out of the deal...
