Recently while entering to win many and by many I actually mean TOO many giveaways during the SITS Spring Fling, I came across an Eco-friendly item I really wanted. Through research I found out I could buy it at Whole Foods here in Tulsa. That was the plan since I never win anything....ooo wait I did actually win one of the giveaways but I'll get to that later. Originally I wanted to go the other evening and it is a good thing I did not!!! I decided to wait until Friday when I do most of my errands.
OH. MY. GOODNESS!!
I am so so so so so so so glad I did not go!
I can't even imagine my reaction!
Later that evening while Martez went walking, I decided to watch the news. I watch the news occasionally but mostly just for the weather since all the other crap is just depressing.
Chills ran up my spine as the top story appeared and a local TU professor proceeds to let his ENORMOUS
LEGS AS BIG AROUND AS FINGERS
out of its cage to crawl up his arm!
Then I couldn't believe my ears as he says TO THE SPIDER,
"Comere (as in come here) Cuddles!"
The spider then crawls up his arm as he is talking about the World's Deadliest Spider ~ the Brazilian Wandering Spider aka the Banana Spider ~ that was found AT the Whole Foods I was supposed to be buying my Eco-friendly products I so wanted.
So I think I will live without the products or order online!
I will not be visiting Whole Foods anytime soon!
And as far as I am concerned I will not be buying bananas!
Isaiah LOVES bananas and will eat many during the day
Hubs will have to be the banana-buyer-extraordinaire since I don't know if grocery stores would allow me to enter in full body armor!
Some of you may think I am going overboard but if you know me at all you know
I HATE SPIDERS!
You can read my funny encounters with the demon spawn here!
In my mind the story would have gone a little like this if I would have been there:
Our top story tonight is about the near death of a woman at a local grocery store. The lady was seen walking the store when she stopped to pick up some bananas. She screamed at the top of her lungs while running, jumping and flailing her arms about yelling for someone to get "it" off of her. Thinking the woman was having a mental breakdown the crowd stood still. Suddenly the woman was gasping for air and holding her throat. EMSA arrived to find the woman having a panic attack with a spider lying next to her. The evil spawn limped over to the woman, bit her on the arm then died. Turns out the spider was harmless but scared and as the saying goes, "Sometimes they are more scared of you then you are of them!"
In this case, she SCARED the spider to death!
So SEE sometimes overreacting is GOOD!!
Needless to say I was rather excited to see the news the following evening when they aired this update.
Take that you nasty demon spawn you!!!!
