How To Let A City Spider Live Even When You’re Scared

Just rewatching the video makes my toes curl again.  Spiders freak me out.  All those legs.  And that web stuff.  Yipes.

But also- I know they do good things.  Eat bugs, walk around, maybe we make medicine from them, they save the city from bad guys…

So when I saw this one in the window- well first I screamed a little, but then I thought “Instagram“.

After sharing his/her 8-legged picture on Facebook and viewing the responses, I knew what had to be done.  Here comes one “How To Let A City Spider Live Even When You’re Scared” video.

Oh yeah.  I saved a spider’s life.  That really happened.

(There’s a metaphor in there somewhere.)

  1. How about house centipedes? Those first freaked me out when I moved to Chicago since I didn’t see them in New York (they are probably intimidated by the cockroaches). The cats love chasing them though.

    I haven’t seen centipedes yet. Eeek!
