I have a pet spider. He lives in the bathtub. Well – he’ not really a pet, but he’s been there a couple weeks, so I feel like we’re family now.
I saved him from my hubby who was doing a removal of a fly that had landed in the tub and of course, couldn’t stay there. You know, flies have to go – but the spider – I requested he stay, so he did.
He’d been here a while already and he seems to like the big white tub. We don’t use it in the summer time – just for big long winter soaks and it gets a good scrubbing before anyone soaks in it anyway.
When I first saw the little guy, he couldn’t get out of the tub. He kept crawling up the side and sliding back down. And yes I took a video, it was entertaining. But over the passing weeks, he has been up on the edge a few times – so I know he can leave if he wanted to. I don’t think he wants to.
It’s like a big giant skateboard park – all to himself.
Do you think I should start charging him rent? You know like room and board – because there has to be something to eat in there or he would have left long ago, yes? Again, we always scrubbed the tub before taking a bath – now I know it has been a good idea, can’t imagine what he is living on – don’t really want to either.
What should I name him? Oh I hope it’s a him – one little spider in the tub – ok, five thousand little spiders in the tub – not so much…. Maybe I should reconsider this arrangement?
