Spider Sense

[Mad Kane proposes we write a limerick and/or haiku about a crazy relative, and though my sister is not crazy, there is this one thing... ]

Spider Sense

Of my sister I will be sincere.
She has one, and just one, little fear.
Her path veers much wider
when she sees a spider.
Yes, she wishes they'd all disappear!


Mad Kane said...

Hahaha! I can relate. Thanks for playing!

sister AE said...

Thanks, and it was my pleasure.

eekks, don't like spiders either,
so the Orkin man comes.
no more icky spiders.

oh yeah, Michelle sent me.

Mrs. Brownstone @ XBOX Wife said...

This was great! Very funny.

I don't like spiders either but grew up in a house full of them!

Sleepypete said...

Lol :-)

Sometimes get spiders here, creeping in through the letterbox. They get evicted by means of empty cardboard Hobnob biscuit tins.

Of course, the cardboard Hobnob biscuit tin has to be emptied before being used as a spider trap :-) :-) :-)

sister AE said...

Hello, tommie.

Thanks Mrs. Brownstone.

Hi, Sleepypete. I think emptying tins ahead of time (just to be prepared) would be a good idea too!

Oh, funny! In a pinch, hairspray will slow the critters down.

Maria said...

My mother believed that spiders only came to clean houses and that one should feel honored to see one.

Me? I'm like Ron Weasley around them.....

sister AE said...

Hi, Sue. I had never heard that. I'll have to let her know, but I'm pretty sure that she has no desire to be close enough to hit them with the spray!

Hello, Maria. Thanks for the laugh!

Simple but good!

Michele sent me here.

Ahh, now that is clever! I need to find a limerick book and share the fun with my 6 year old. I can remember getting a kick out of them as a child, and I think he would too.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. :)

sister AE said...

Thanks, JLP.

hi, Dena. glad you stopped by. Odds are Mad Kane's site has some ideas.
