Attack of the Plastic Spider

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.

    Ha! Oh, Hermione. I love how she tries to act all coy in the beginning and then realizes she can’t hide her love for the spider in the end.

    She does that all the time. She tries to act like she’s above playing with toys, but then she can’t resist acting like a kitten.

    Hahaha, I love the “You’re not being real cute, try again sweetie.” 🙂

    This kind of behavior would never be allowed in my apartment. Fake spiders or real spiders, I cannot handle them.

    Jill, my cats have totally taken over the whole apartment. Even though I am a big neat freak, there are plastic garbage ties, balled up pieces of paper, and a plastic spider all over the floor so they can always be entertained.
