The Eensy Weensy Spider

I think I ate a spider.

I woke up yesterday morning with a bite on one of my fingers. I didn't think much of it until the evening when I noticed that the corner of my mouth had been sore all day. There was a red spot there and it was getting more and more tender.

I get up this morning. The red spot on my mouth is getting bigger and hurts even more than yesterday.

I would say its a cold sore but I've never had one of those, and no one else in my family has either. So how would I just magically get a cold sore?

So thats when I came to the conclusion that I must have eaten a spider, and right before it went in my mouth it bit me.

"They" say that we eat an average of 8 spiders in our lifetime. I have NO idea how anyone could possibly know that, unless they watch someone sleep every night of their life, but thats what they say.

It doesn't make sense to me though, I mean when do you see spiders crawl on people's faces? They usually stay way up in the corner of the ceiling. Are they watching you, waiting for you to fall asleep so they can commit suicide? I can just see the thinking, "Hmmmmm, of all the places I can crawl, I think I'll go in this gaping hole thats forcefully blowing air at me..."

It just doesn't make sense.

So anyway, I might have a cold sore. But I really do want to know who could have spread this to me, so I can set some spiders loose on them one night.


  1. Melz, that's GROSS.

    Please stop eating spiders!

  2. Well, as the multiple herpes presentations I've been to has taught me, people can be born with Herpes Simplex I virus, and never know it and then get a cold sore at one point. So basically, you are gross and have herpes.

  3. YUCK! I hope you didn't eat a spider. Just thinking about the possiblity of it gives me the heeby jeebies! Spiders are creepy!

  4. Okay, I am totally and completely grossed out. And oddly, a little hungry.

  5. If I eat spiders, then yay for me. They deserve it. You did the world a service. Congratulations!

  6. She swallowed the spider that wiggled and jiggled and tiggled inside her. She swallowed the spider to catch the fly, but I don't know why she swallowed that fly.

  7. I have been LUCKY and never had a cold sore either...my sis and dad get them a fair amount.
    BUT......I BET you DID get bit by a spider. Kinda makes me worry about just WHAT exactly is crawling in and out of our noses, mouths, ears....during the night. What if our bodies are being taken over with an insect infestation. (gosh, maybe you better hope it's a cold sore)

  8. You really think you swallowed a spider?! That little factoid about accidentally eating spiders is a terrifying prospect, although I sort of see the possibility of it happening - if they're embedded dead spiders, or decomposing ones, or something like that. But live prowling ones? I agree it doesn't make sense. Have you thought that maybe it's zit and not a cold core that's dogging you?

  9. LOL! oh God! i hope they're wrong about the 8 spiders!!!

  10. Thanks. I was just about to go up to bed and sleep. With my mouth open. Back to the Google Reader...


I'm mysteriously judging whether or not you're going to comment or not...you know you want to.
