Justin just interrupted my defensive driving to call me to the kitchen because he found a BLACK WIDOW SPIDER in our bag of grapes.

Everone now...*shudder* I confirmed it was a black widow (female, in fact!), and we looked it up online to find out if there might be another one or babies lurking nearby.

Wait, it gets better. He took the bag outside to kill the spider and saw a snake on the sidewalk. You'd think we were living on a farm or something.

Gross. Gross. Gross.

I'm so glad he found it and not me.

Ewww is right! *shudder* Spiders are bad enough IMO, but a female BLACK WIDOW? I'm so glad you guys found it. I know it wasn't fun, especially with the snake too.

I don't even want to think of where else the BW spider could have gotten. I have a habit of knocking my shoes together upside down after I haven't worn a pair in a while.

(I've never had the "pleasure" of seeing a BW in person, and I don't really care to either. A Brown Recluse? Yes, and up close. That was enough for me.)

EWWWW is correct! At least both of them were outside your house, not inside when the discovery was made and yeah for brave, fearless husbands. The one and only scorpion we have ever had in this house (8 years knock on wood) was found dead and by hubby! Yes, I am a city girl and I "don't like spiders and snakes" (or scorpions)
