Little story...

I thought that just the mere presence of scorpions and two inch spiders in our house was bad enough. It turns out I was wrong. Yesterday morning as I started washing my face I was still pretty groggy and out of it from waking up. Just as I was about to close my eyes to rinse my face I looked in the mirror and saw... a scorpion climbing on my shoulder!

It was a small little guy but still; a scorpion is a scorpion, right? Well, needless to say I freaked out a little trying to get it off without really touching it. I can only imagine how ridiculous I looked flailing about. But I did so successfully and was fully awake from that moment on. Not the best way to start the day but I'll take a scorpion over a spider any day.

I freaked out and shivered a little just from reading it. I agree with you though, definitely scorpion over spider. Not sure why that is since scorpions have claws and a poisonous tail but no thank you to spiders.

i'm sorry, but choosing a scorpion over a spider (unless it's like a black widow or a big hairy tarantula a la home alone) is crazy.

AHHH! That´s crazy! I would have died! I´m just glad you didn´t get stung!
