As you will all know, I don’t like spiders. Little ones I can deal with. It’s those massive house spiders, which run across the floor while you’re watching TV which I can’t stand. The weird thing is, I have no issue with daddy-long-legs.

While we were away on holiday at Butlins, there was a huge daddy-long-legs in our apartment. Claire, who bravely dealt with the spider in our house last week, did not like the flying insect at all. I was able to place a glass over it and let it go, without any peril.

It got me thinking – daddy-long-legs are as big as house spiders, they look like house spiders, and when they crawl, they move a bit like house spiders. Why do I have no fear of them?

If you were to ask me, what would make a house spider more frightening, I would say that giving them wings and the power of flight, would add to my phobia. Daddy-long-legs are basically my worst nightmare, but I have no fear. OK, OK, daddy-long-legs are insects, with just 6 legs, but there is something messed up in my brain somewhere.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
