As we go about our daily routines, we are often oblivious to the dangers surrounding us … ready to catch us unaware and wreak certain havoc in our lives. Such was the case this morning as I bounded out of the house without a care in the world.
Little did I know. Real life should come with a sound track so we can be warned when danger is lurking.
As I was driving down the street, I caught a sudden movement out of the corner of my eye. To my horror, it was a large, bald, albino spider crawling on the door beside me.
A small strangled scream burped out as I pulled the car over to the side of the road as calmly as I could under the circumstances. I’m rather proud at how deftly I managed that without killing anyone … or inadvertantly knocking the stowaway onto my lap.
I carefully pushed the car door open while trying to maintain as much distance between me and the deadly alien as possible. Only then did I flick him (her?) off the door with a piece of paper.
Not seeing exactly where he (or she) landed, I leaped out of the car – rather gracefully I’d like to think – and jumped up and down frantically … you know, just in case there were others in the invasion.
Alert level is now at DEF CON 2.
You’ve been warned. No one is safe.
