Not everyone's brave enough to cup spiders. I know I'm not. I freak out at the site of them, and the only thing I can do is take a slightly anxious whack at them. I know it sounds mean, but spiders are creatures I just don't care about.
Reminds me of when I was a kid, we had a pool and a vacuum cleaner inside that always ran, we called it a creepy crawly. Anyway, when I was a kid, I was SOOO terrified of it. I hated being in the pool alone with it, it'd nearly bring me to tears. Then one day, I decided, I didn't want to be scared of it anymore. So I named it, and he became my friend. :P I applied that to a lot of things, I have a 'pet' spider in my bathroom and above the door in my kitchen. Thinking of them as friends, with cute little names help me, lol.... maybe I'm just nuts... >.>;
LOL. I live in Minnesota, and mosquitoes are what people call our "State Bird", even though it's really a Loon. I'm not afraid of them, they're just annoying! And they spray for them here, so these last couple of summers, they haven't been that bad.
