If only I had Spidey powers…

Monday I was brutally attacked by a huge lethal spider.  Or so I like to say.  I didn’t actually see the spider, but I felt it and it hurt.  By Tuesday the area where I was bitten was purple and very, very sore and my face was sort of hot.  Then Wednesday morning I woke up and was covered in a total body rash.  That’s when I googled spider bites and decided all my flesh was going to rot away if I didn’t go to the doctor.

The doctor asked me if I had actually seen the spider.  No, but I’m pretty sure that a ginormous furry spider crawled up my skirt and bit me on my thigh.  Then he asked me if I was feeling any heightened senses.  That’s when I shot a web out my arse, spun him around eighty-six times and threatened to serve him to my young for dinner.
After the fun was over I got a prescription for antibiotics to fight off the infection I’m sporting and a warning to stay away from spiders.  Since I’m going through my storage room today I swear I’ve “seen” a gazillion spiders, but then they turn into dust bunnies, Legos and wads of paper.  
By days end I can promise I will need a stiff drink and chocolate.
