I should have adopted a cat. They are furry, cute, and most importantly they eat spiders. I would not necessarily classify myself as a person who has an irrational fear of spiders; however, I have woken up from a dead sleep truly believing that spiders were crawling all over my face and body. I have also found myself trapped in the bathroom while a spider foe attacks me and takes claim to the tiled floor. In these situations, luckily, Trevor has come to my rescue and killed the giant spider before it could sink its vampiric teeth into my flesh. Unfortunately, it was also my fear of spiders that led to his unhappy discovery that, in fact, girls do poop (He chose to believe girls “magically” did not). For couples everywhere, I would not recommend this method to overcome relationship barriers.
