We've been hyper-vigilant of our surroundings ever since seeing the scorpion and rattlesnake while our NY buds were here visiting.
We went for a walk yesterday afternoon here in our little slice of desert. As were were walking down the ATV trail that serves as our driveway, I spotted a tarantula, our first live spotting.
R: What?! What?! What?! begins dancing about, turning this way and that, ready to run but not knowing which direction she should point
A: Stop! Stop! Stop!
She calmed and we admired the spider for a bit then walked on.
A: So, just for future reference, what should I say when I want you to stop?
R: I wanted to obey but my butt got scared.
I know I'll be the one left to fight off the hordes of rattlescorantulas.
Good thing I have mad ninja skills.
