The Sink Spider

So today I was “purging” the kitchen. (I’ve been in the process of trying to get the house under control)

I spilled a quart of coconut flour in the sink into the crockpot that I made potato soup in yesterday. The crockpot was soaking in the sink.

Yes I know “soaking” isn’t actually that helpful…unless you are just putting off a task you don’t want to do…which is what I was doing.

And then I spilled coffee grounds in it. So it was really a nasty mess.

I was picking my way through it when a SPIDER JUMPED AT ME from inside the sink somewhere.

Obviously I screamed a little.

Claire was alarmed and paused putting away silverware. She never minds a break from chores.

Claire: What Mama?

Me: There’s a spider. It scared me.

Claire: You mean it STARTLED you.

Me: Yeah. Whatever.

Claire: I want to see it.

**Looks at the spider in the sink that I am pouring dish soap on**

Claire shakes her head and hands me a steak knife with the most serious look on her face. She shrugged her shoulders and sighed.

Claire: Mama you don’t have a choice, you just have to cut him.

So apparently I have a gangster in the making.

Y’all watch yourselves.
