Little Devil Spiders and Such

I got bit by a spider a few nights ago. Twice the little shit bit me. Once he bit me on my waste where my underwear waste band is, and another on my right upper thigh.

It itches like crazy and it is swollen. Gigi found the little shit a day later in the bed and killed it.

I booked my flight to St Croix for June 5. We actually leave the gate about 6 AM so I’ll be cracking the whip to get the misses going that early.

I thought about going cheaper and flying down on miles the night before for free, sleeping on a park bench beside Richard or Peter’s sofa, then pick Gigi up at the airport the following day. She would have nothing to do with that. Then she fessed up that she would automatically miss the 6 AM flight if I wasn’t here bitching at her at 4 AM.

I can’t wait to get down there again and see the island and friends.

I’ll bet Peter’s “girlfriend” will be in Europe again. I’m starting to doubt she really exists.

We’ll be traveling with two new converts so I get to show them around.

I think you need to take early retirement and just move to St. Croix dude.

Actually I'm starting to think I should do the same thing. You've just about convinced me that it's the perfect place. LOL ;-)

Great. Now I'm going to have the creepy crawlies when I get into bed tonight. It's the one drawback to saying goodbye to winter. All the icky bugs come back out of hiding.

Um, how did you not feel a spider in your underwear before it bit you? And, maybe more importantly, how did a spider get INTO your underwear?!?

And Gigi is my hero for killing that spider - brave woman!

I was asleep. I am very good at sleeping so I didn't notice.

I didn't have on any underwear so he was free to bite wherever. I got lucky if you know what I mean.

You can't feel them biting, you just know the next day from the reaction to the venom.

Heike should be here when you're here, she's working as a school nurse now. Oh wait, school might be out by then, maybe she'll be in Germany :)

Peter should have the Greek open by then too. ;)

I've been thinking, if the seas cooperate, of bringing Origami over to the beach there by your villa, maybe the kayak too. Then we can go out from there and explore the south shore some. Or maybe not, if we want to go to Buck.

Oh pleez, pleez. I can help with origami. Anything you say...get me out in the ocean.

I'll even get my back waxed again so you can drag me behind.

I really, really don't like spiders. I can't believe Gigi killed it! I would have been frozen in fear!

Reggie- glad to know you're coming back on the 5th.
We have lots of spiders here in case you feel homesick. Plenty of things to bang your head on too.

Or maybe you just want to play a round of crappy golf again.
It's good to know that we're not alone in our blahs, funks, welts, and stews!
