As I've discussed before, working alone does have its perks. I don't even get visitors very often.
I finally had a visitor a few minutes ago. I was just minding my own business when I glanced over to my left, and saw him.
And I suddenly wished I had someone else in the office with me.
Seeing how big it was, I decided this was going to involve a shoe and lots of paper towels. (I won't smush or bother insects outside, but inside is my turf.) I did have the presence of mind to take a picture first, since it would make a great blog post. Though as I was taking the first one I thought "Oh shoot. The spider's going to hear my camera go off and attack me!" So, I pulled my camera/phone away as it was taking the picture. My visitor didn't budge, so I took a deep breath and tried again. This one took, so I put my phone down, pulled off my shoe, and smashed him. Twice.
Then I grabbed a handful of napkins from my desk drawer and disposed of my visitor in my trashcan. It was about this time that I really wanted to throw up, but I didn't.
I am so brave.
I just hope he didn't invite any of his friends.
