My New Mexico Bug Story.
Last fall, we were leaving my parents house after dark. On the way home, we stopped at a stoplight and something caught my eye. I looked out the passenger side window, and sliding down the glass was a GIANT tarantula!!! I jumped out of my seat, screaming my head off... I went ballistic! Barry started swerving and yelling because he thought that a car was barrelling toward us. After realizing we were not about to die, Barry screamed, "WHAT!" And I frantically explained that there was a spider on my window.
I've never seen Barry so mad.
When we got home, I made him get out of the car, come around to my side, and thoroughly make sure the spider didn't miraculously stay on the car during our drive, just waiting for a chance to eat me.
Lucky for me, it was gone. But I wonder, HOW IN THE HECK DID A TARANTULA GET ON TOP OF MY CAR???!!?! My theory is that it dropped onto our roof from a tree we were parked under. Just think! It could have landed on my head!!!!!!!!!
Even after a year, I still have to check the roof (and the car handle) whenever we park there, just to make sure Tarantula's Family isn't seeking revenge. Shudder.
