Household Tip #4: Kaptain Karl's Kreative Spider Killing

When it is very late at night and you are tired but, as you crawl into bed, notice a spider on the vaulted ceiling above you, grab a nearby exercise ball and

bounce it on the ceiling.

Because the ball is sooooo big and the spider is sooooo small, you can kill it in 3,
count 'em, 3 bounces.

Added bonus: You make your wife laugh REALLY HARD and provide her with a post topic for her blog.

I wish I had a video of this. He was not two seconds in bed after a very long and busy day when he noticed this spider. He let out this big sigh and scanned the room. I turned my back on him for a split second!
The next thing I knew he's standing there with this ginormous exercise ball in his hands.

I'm like, "What are you doing with that?"

He just looked at me. Then he looked at the spider. He looked back at me. Then he bounced it!
Because it was on a vault, the angle of the ceiling was perfect for the ball to bounce right back to him. It was a perfect hit. We know because the spider was dangling by a few legs trying to figure out how a small planet got into the house.

Still dangling but a couple of legs had fallen off...

Ah, gravity.

The rest of the spider fell. Karl scooped him and all his leg parts up with a tissue and threw him away.
Voila! Time for bed.

LOL!!! I'm laughing my head off right now. I love the part:

"He just looked at me. Then he looked at the spider. He looked back at me. Then he bounced it!"

I can totally picture Karl's face, then you cracking up! Thanks for the funny! Now I gotta go get me one of those balls....

Oh, this is hilarious, but I would have killed my husband!! He isn't even allowed to use MY shoes to kill anything. And if I'm the one in charge of killing multi-legged creatures (because he isn't home and won't be for a while,) I pull out the vacuum and all of its glorious attachments....and maybe a bar stool if necessary if the vacuum won't reach!

Thanks for the laugh! Have a great week! =)

Hmmm...I have a vaulted ceiling. I'd like buff arms. I hate spiders. I might have to give this one a go.

Looking for something??
