Creepin' It Real

We lived in Arizona for 7 years and had close encounters with all manner of pokey, slithery, furry, pinchy, crawly things.

When we moved to Switzerland, we (naively) thought our creepy critter days were over.

(to the tune of "Itsy Bitsy Spider"🎵)

considerably-sized spiders

crawled up our stucco'd walls

old lady freak out dance

accompanied high-pitched calls

out came the hand-vac

pointed at the ceiling

and the considerably-sized spiders

vanished amidst high-pitched squealing
