Daddy won't be coming home

Daddy crossed the line. He won't be coming back, I made sure of that. He never should have invaded my privacy the way he did.
There I was, all set for a nice relaxing hot shower after a long day of work. Out of the corner of my eye I saw him. He was hovering over me.  I nervously kept my eye on him in case he decided to make any quick moves. He kept his distance but this wasn't the end of it.

The next day he was there again. This time he was a little too close for comfort. He had climbed down the shower wall. So I quickly washed him down the drain. And that, my friends, is why daddy won't be coming home.

Wait. You had the camera in the shower with you?:)

Love the title!

My parents own a cabin in the Piney Woods. In the fall, these critters are all over the place on the outside--it gives me the creeps.

Roschelle said...

good one annie. can't believe you got such a great shot...

ewww...super creepy but still great!

gayle said...

Love this picture!! I have to try and remember to take more like that!!

Sandee said...

When that happens here I always say, "Better luck next time." I would have done the same thing.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)

Beebeebabs said...

Great Shot!!! - A Kodak moment lol

Ann said...

Jane, LOL, I thought so

Nico not while I was showering, I'm not that addicted to taking pictures. I dried off got dressed then went back in with my camera to take the picture

Roschelle, :) it really didn't start out so good since the lighting in my bathroom is horrid. It had a lot of help in my photoshop elements

gayle, sometimes I wonder why I take all these pictures but then when I'm digging for something for a post I realize how useful they are

Sandee lol, I think I just said "See ya"

Beebeebabs, I don't think he really enjoyed it all that much though...lol

Lin said...

Ick. Ick. Ick. Good for you! I don't like spiders. Ick.

Miawa said...

You go girl! I hate those things.

LDH said...

Well, you did give him a second chance. Guess he didn't take your hint. :)

Grace said...

Again with the bugs...spiders even...Ewww!

BeadedTail said...

Yikes! Those long legs are creepy! Glad he made it down the drain!

marie said...

Daddy lasted way longer at your house thanhe would of at mine! Ick!!

Ratty said...

That's the best way to deal with home invaders like this. Outside is fine for them, but inside is too close.

Anny said...

such long legs... this is pretty scary if you are trying to shower in peace.. hehehehhee.. love the twist :)

tahtimbo said...

I actually like Daddy Long-legs (the only type of spider I don't mind), but visiting you in the shower is a little too close for comfort. By the way, that photo gives me the creeps (virtual shiver going down my spine) :)

Bossy Betty said...

But I liked Daddy!

allotments4you.com said...

What sort of spider is he??? Are you aware Ann that when you wash a spider down the plug hole they can climb back up again??

I quite like spiders but prefer them outside where they don't make cobwebs in my home...lol

Duni said...

Ann - he seems a little skinny...you should come over to my place. Our spiders are a lot fatter than yours ;-)

FishHawk said...

I just love Addams Family Bedtime Stories.

Grampy said...

I am not sure Ann. That could be bordering on animal cruelty.LOL Of course he didn't heed the first warning. So I guess it was self defense.I won't have to alert any animal activist groups.LOL
Have a wonderful Spider Free Weekend.

A.Marie said...

EWWWWWWW!!! lol

Marg said...

LOL, our Mom hates spiders too. Ewwwww is all I can say and we sure are glad Daddy is not coming home this time.
Have a great week end.

Jean said...

I like Granddaddy Spiders. They are interesting to observe. When they invade my space I just pick them up and relocate them. Their mouths are too small to bite humans. I'm sorry he wasn't a good listener.
I like his picture though.:)

Out on the prairie said...

Kind of had a Hitchcock flair to the story.Good post Ann!

Catherine said...

Ummm.... I hate to confirm allotments4you's comment above Ann but have you ever see the documentary on spiders where they can actually breath under water for quite some time and can actually crawl back up the water drain? Unless you actually kill them?

Hence the song "The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out. Out came the sun and dried up all the rain and the itsy bitsy spider crawled up the spout again."

Think about it... ;)

Happy Thoughts!
xo Catherine

Sharkbytes said...

We have a lot of daddies in our shower and bath. I need a sugar daddy, though, not this kind!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Okay, way toooo creepy for my taste but a FANTASTIC shot nonetheless.

Ann said...

the booker man glad you agree with me :)

Lin ICK is what I was saying when he was climbing down the wall

Miawa lol, I don't mind them if they keep their distance

LDH not only did I give him a second chance but I tried to chase him up the wall by spraying the wall just underneath him. He refused to go so I washed him down...lol

Grace, sorry I'll try to keep the bugs to a minimum. :)

Beaded tail He does have some long legs on him

marie daddy would have lasted longer had he just stayed put...lol

ratty I agree outside is a better place for them

anny that first day I saw him I was freaking out, couldn't keep my eye off him while I was in the shower

tahtimbo I know they are supposed to be a good spider but not in my shower please :)

bossy betty, I like daddy too but again, not in my shower :)

allotments4you I only know him by daddy long legs, I don't know what the technical name is. I guess I figured he could climb back up but it was unlikely it would be while the water was still running

duni, I'll keep my skinny spiders over your fat one any day :)

fishhawk wait till I show you what's living in my basement :)

grampy oh it was self defense all the way, no doubt about it...lol

A. Marie yep big EWWWWWWWW

Marg update, daddy is back but he's at least staying up in the corner and not venturing down the wall

Jean I would relocate him if I wasn't so squeamish about touching him...lol

out on the prairie I think I heard the theme song playing while I was watching that spider

catherine never seen the documentary but I do know the song quite well. and yes he is back either that or it's his brother out for revenge :)

sharkbytes a sugar daddy would NOT have been washed down the drain...lol

poetic shutterbug lol, my creepy side won't come out very often but I couldn't resist this one.

Donna said...

OHNooooo!!! Poor Daddy!!!Hahahaaa...
hughugs

earthtoholly said...

Ha! I hate spiders, but daddy long legs don't bother me as much. Nevertheless, I'm 100% behind ya on washin' him down the drain! Nice shot.

Ann said...

Donna, daddy wouldn't have had to go through it if he wouldn't have climbed down the wall...lol

earthtoholly they don't bother me much either except when they get that close while I'm in the shower...lol
