Yesterday was a pretty good day! Church was grand; choir went well even through the chaos and we even survived Walmart ...and helped a lady in distress!
And then, we came home...and spotted a TON of baby spiders just hatched from a nest. And right at my front door, I might add!
Only, it was a nest of black widows. So my three manly men decided to take care of them.
How's that, you ask?
Well, it was decided they couldn't kill them with a shoe in the air. So, one of them was told to stay put and make sure none of them escaped into the house. The other was sent in search of a flashlight. And Dad? Well, he went in search of the torch!
Once the torch and the flashlight arrived, the son in charge of making sure no spiders entered the house asked if he should get the fire extinguisher; after all, what if dad torched too much and caught the house on fire? Same son was told to get a shoe. The mama black widow was huge and if the torch should miss her, a back up shoe was needed!
Seriously, I don't think I've ever witnessed such male bonding. So much so, that I started texting the Good Looking One thinking he might want to show up and join in with his brothers! He got a good laugh out of the whole thing, but never offered to come over.
Amazingly enough, my house survived any flames. The wooden chair smelled a little smoky, but no fire.
