What is six?

The number of times a TOY spider can scare an arachnophobic mommy in one evening.

Just by lying on the kitchen floor.

Every time I walk past it.

You'd think I would remember it was there.

Or that I would just pick it up.

That is so funny and sounds a little familiar! We had this realistic and I mean REALISITC plastic roach that circled our office for years. It scared me EVERYTIME. It would show up in the refrigerator, by my phone, in the bathroom, in my coffee cup, you get the picture? Gee, I am going to miss work. But, a spider I would stomp. Not a roach though because I hate that sound.
