Six Years Later...

Seanan: Did I ever tell you about the huntsman spider*?

Me: No.

Seanan: It was when I was in Australia. We'd turned out the lights and I heard it walking on the ceiling. I turned lights on and it was on the ceiling above my bed as big as my hand. (Palms her face with her hand.) So big I could hear it walking. Then, it fell off the ceiling onto the bed then the floor. It scuttled under the bed and I couldn't find it.

Me: When was this?

Seanan: 2010.

Me: Wait, we were sharing a room together at WorldCon in 2010.

Seanan: I knew there was a reason I hadn't told you this story.


*Do not google this if you are afraid of spiders.

I'm very glad she didn't tell me at the time. I would've wanted to burn the place down.

LOL!! Ignorance is indeed bliss. There are some things better left under the bed. To stay there. And not emerge. Ever.
