Take a look at this picture.
Looks really terrifying, doesn’t it? This is what I see every day when I wake up in the morning.
This is what it really is. Just a little plastic spider that found its way home amidst all the Harry Potter stuff I brought back from the library display. I know it is a fake spider, but every time I see it I freak out and scream like a little girl. It doesn’t help that I usually see it first thing in the morning when I am still groggy and not wearing my contacts.
The reason why I always freak out is because it is never in the same place. It keeps moving all over my apartment when I’m not looking. I know who the culprit is. It is………………..Miss Hermione!!!
Here she is trying to look all innocent and pretend like she’s never seen the spider before. I don’t buy it for a second.
So if you are somewhere in Iowa and you hear a bloodcurdling scream around 8:00 in the morning, it is probably just me coming across the spider. Why don’t I just get rid of it? Because it makes her so darn happy 🙂
P.S. Here is a video of me trying to get Hermione to play with the spider. She only seems to do it when I am not looking.
