The Day I Became Afraid of Spiders

This is not particularly a happy memory but one that I will always remember!

I was in the clarinet section of the Marshall University Marching Thunder 2000-2002! Sometimes we would have our sectional rehearsals in the stairwell of the Cam Hendersen Center. Creepy crawly critters live in stairwells and one of the girls named Genna who was in my section got "bit" by a spider there. This is when it alllll started.

The next day after the incident, we were on the practice field and Genna could hardly walk on her leg where the spider bit her and was starting to not feel good. Me and another clarinet took her to the ER to have them check her out. We had to describe the way the spider looked to the doctor. I'm sure he gave her something to put on it or something to take, but don't really remember that part. All I know is that she came back the next week and said she had to go to the doctor again and that doctor told her the spider laid eggs in her leg! This is only what she told me but ever since then I have been super scared of spiders! I don't even know if it is possible, but I don't really care cause I wanna stay as far away from them as possible! I am actually writing this post because tonight one was on my arm and I threw a fit by flinging it off of me and running away!

My husband would freak out if he read this. He is super afraid of spiders. He is not afraid of any other bugs but spiders freak him out.
