Who wants to rescue me? 馃槅

I can't go to bed because of a spider...

I am usually ok at removing them but this one was so big and fast 馃槶 It has gone behind the drawers right next to my bed and normally if I can't see them they don't bother me but then I thought 'what if it goes on me when I'm asleep'? Or goes on my face?? 馃槺

Unless you live in a country that does have spiders capable of harming humans, it would not have hurt you. Nor would it have chosen to walk around on you, but might have done accidentally. If you are asleep you wouldn't notice it!

I lived alongside a big spider for a few days, but eventually caught it and put it under the garden shed, probably a better environment for it anyway. I was not worried for my sake but did not want to risk accidentally killing it!

@ArishMell I know, but it was the knowledge of it being so close to me, that's all. I remember reading somewhere that you swallow like 7 spiders in your sleep over your life which is a bit hard to believe... but if it's true I didn't want that to be one of them!

@helsbels Oh, I understand you! I don't really believe the 7 spiders story either. I think they'd have to be very tiny ones, perhaps baby ones leaving their original hatchery by floating down-wind on their very fine threads, as those of some species do.
