Welcome To My Nightmare

My Wordless Wednesdays were never wordless, so I'm going to join the other blog tradition of Photo Friday.

Now here's something you really don't want to see as you're reaching into a kitchen cabinet for an old box of Stovetop Stuffing.

Luckily, this black widow wasn't in our kitchen. It was in a jar at Knott's Berry Farm, in California, and it was all I could do to not drown that nasty little creature in the nearest pickle barrel.

Ick. I hate black widows.

This is kind of freaky! I also get goose bumps whenever I see spiders this big!

We had a Brown Widow in our house once. As scary as they are, they're beautiful.

You had me going for a minute there!! Glad it was @ Knott's & not in your home. As much as I dislike them, I do love how satiny the spiders body looks... crazy ain't it?

Do you have black widows? Because we do and I do not like it one bit. I don't like any spiders, but they are the worst.

Well, as you know, we have scorpions.

@jen, I've actually seen only one in our garage in the past five years. When we lived in Boise, they were everywhere.

@brettdl, I think I'd actually prefer scorpions over black widows. I was stung by a scorpion once when I was a kid and it didn't seem to leave a lasting mark.

Gosh! I'm glad that thing's no where near your home. They could sneak into virtually anywhere, underneath blanket sheets in your cabinet to your leather shoes.

Hey, aren't Black Widow spiders supposed to have that tiny red hourglass on their abdomens?

We have something called the Arizona bark scorpions, which supposedly are much more painful than other scorpions. We've found two in our house so far.
