I grabbed my keys and went out to my car. I opened the door and sat in the driver's seat. I went to turn on my car but was distracted by something on the dash board directly across from the passenger seat. There was a thick web that connected from my passenger seat to my glove compartment (A.D.D. Note: why do we still call it that?).
I stared at the web as if I've never seen a spider web before. In my defense, this is the first time I've ever seen one in my car. I swiped at the webbing and that's when I saw it. It was resting at the corner of my dash and darted into my glove compartment. It moved so fast that I wasn't able to get a look at this "spider." All I know is that it was big and fast. I held back screaming like a child, but my arms flailed back like a person who just found out the stove was on, the hard way.
It was too thick to be a daddy long legs, but it did possess that color and size. My mind right away pictured the facehugger from the Alien franchise.
I froze for a few seconds while the phrase, "Do I really want to do this?," replayed in my head like a broken record. By the time I gained the misplaced courage to open the the glove compartment, Facehugger Spider was no where to be found. Possibly hiding underneath my car insurance forms. I wasn't going to fight this spider when it clearly had the surprise element advantage.
