We build our house under a bunch of trees that were infested with wolf spiders. Those are about 3″ long but not fuzzy like tarantulas. After they put the roof on I went around with a flashlight and a hand vacuum and sucked ‘em all up, about 50 SPIDERS!!!
Then I went to empty the hand vac in the trash.
I opened it up and 50 FUCKING WOLF SPIDERS JUMPED OUT.
All over me.
I dropped the flashlight. It was dark. I couldn’t see. I could feel them crawling on me as I tried my best to brush them off as fast as I could. Little legs tickling their way up my arms and legs.
I thought they’d get smashed up in the vacuum. Nope!
One got in my ear, one almost got in my mouth – I may have been screaming at the time.
I’m thinking of a writing horror story, and trying to think of things that scare people or creep them out.
What scares YOU?
