My Hero.

Today marks 2 months of blissful marriage to Mr. Reed. It would only be natural for us to have our first spider experience today.

I warned Karl before we were married that he would have to kill bugs for me. I can come up with clever ways to trap the bug, but beyond that point I am too much of a girl. This afternoon, as I was cleaning up our little home, I turned around only to find a giant killer spider charging towards my foot with its 8 gross legs! My first response was to, of course, scream. Second- call Karl's name. I halfway was aware that Karl was actually at work and would be for another couple hours, but when I became fully aware, I knew it was up to me to trap the beast. I quickly did a few circles while standing in place looking for something to contain the spider until my brave husband would be home. I then came up with a brilliant strategy. I ran to the kitchen and grabbed a cup which I used as a forcefield to confine the spider. I then went about my business, casually glancing at the cup every few minutes to make sure it hadn't lifted the cup with its super strength legs or bitten through the glass with it's powerful fangs! (Do spiders have fangs?) When Karl came home, he calmly took the spiders downstairs and released it into the grass. Good teamwork, babe. I knew I was supposed to marry him.

Hahaha reminds me of my first spider encounter. We had been married like 2 weeks. So I was still in that awkward stage of walking around in my G's. (It was never an issue for Justin haha). So I had just come home from work, and was going to change into come comfy clothes. So I go into my closet, and pull a pair of sweats out, on their hanger. Our comes a daddy long-leg, crawling across the back of the hanger. I dropped the hanger, ran screeming across the apt in my G's, jumped on the couch and told Justin he had to kill it. I think took a kitchen chair into the closet (no was was that bug going to get on my feet!). I stood on that chair and told that spider exactly where he was going to be going.
3 1/2 years later....its still one of our favorite and most laughed about memories.
