I kind of guessed they were going to be all true about halfway. And I once woke up with a spider crawling on my lips. Had forgot about that...until now.

[shudder]

Had one take up residence in my mailbox for a few days. I was very leery of retrieving the mail: Open the door and the thing would start running around. Apparently they're faster than the speed of light! :rolleyes:

(No, I can't bear to kill bugs, if I can avoid it at all -- I knew there's no food supply in the mailbox and it would leave of its own accord -- eventually.)

I'm such a worry-wart, I actually thought about "taking care of" the bug 'cause I thought it was unfair to the mailman to have to see that bug day after day.

Then I thought, he's a big man, he can take care of himself! :lol:

Never really thought about it before but I imagine mailmen ... err ... mail delivery people, have to deal with spiders and bugs all the time (or worse).

The Brown Recluse and Black Widows are the ONLY creatures in these parts that we're likely to come across that can cause serious harm (unless you're allergic to bees and such). No poisonous snakes, no scorpions, no killer bees, no fire ants, nothing. Much further North you might have brown bears, but they're not known to be killers. One of the major reasons I've never considered moving elsewhere!
