Jen: Huh? Why are you crouched on the ground to see a bird under our kitchen table? [Jen gets on her hands and knees to see the "bird"]....damn...that isn't a bird.
[Jen runs to get the camera...meanwhile the "bird" moves]
[camera obtained and picture taken]
Jen: Zach that isn't a bird...that is a spider.
Zach: A spider! Dad....a spider a spider!
Dustin: Uh - I am holding Logan so I can't kill the spider [big smile on his face]
Jen: Figures. How come all we ever find are wolf spiders? Pest control just sprayed inside the house two weeks ago. How come this spider is living?
[side note - we both HATE SPIDERS!]
[Jen heads to the garage to get the Ortho Home Defense MAX spray, and takes Zach with her because she doesn't want Zach to go near the spider]
Jen: Zach stand back...mom is gonna spray poison on the spider to kill it.
Jen: Just stand behind me.
[spray....spray spray spray...spray]
Jen: Dang it...it is heading for the cat water.
Jen: Dustin how long does it normally take the poison to kill the spider?
Dustin: Less than a minute [still has a smile on his face]
Jen: Oh, oh....I think it is working...not all his legs are moving. Zach - see the spider is dying.
Zach: Oh! Ewwwwwwww - SPIDER!
[few seconds later]
Jen: Zach lets make sure he is dead...can you go get Daddy's shoe?
Zach: [runs over to Dustin] Dad - need your shoe....[pulls the shoe off Dustin's foot and runs it back to Jen in the kitchen] Here mom.
Jen: Yup he is dead.
