I've heard those flu shots can have adverse side effects Jaz... dizziness... loss of balance... headache... vomiting... and a bad case of the falling downs.
So does the viral flu, Del. At least these only last a few hours.
Jules, there is no such thing as an innocent spider.
I lived in Alabama for about 6 months and the spiders there were the size of half dollars.
There was always a stack of fat magazines next to my chair in the lounge. I usually threw them on top of the invading spider whilst standing on my chair. Then I would jump on top of the magazine just to make sure, finally using the broom handle to lift the magazine and verify the spider's demise.
Be careful what you wish for as you just might get it.
