Last night

late at night
had just turned off the light to go to sleep
decided to make last minute trip to bathroom
bathroom light not currently working
okay cause laundry light does and that is enough
do my thing
pull on the toilet paper to tidy up
spider rolls into view
was on back of toilet paper roll
panicked scramble
body moves faster than feet
possibly something to do with knickers residing round ankles
collapse on floor in doorway and scrap knee
retreat muttering to bandage the blood
fucking hate spiders

  1. Ouch. I much prefer spiders to snakes though.

    Re the pants around the ankle caper: a few years ago I was waiting for a bus. There was a man there with obvious mental health issues. He was trotting down the street with his pants around his ankles, waving to passersby. Lots of whom were shrieking 'think of the children' and other inanities. Me - I was just so impressed with his balance.
