As a kid I begged plus begged my Dad for a pet tarantula, but finally she said yep plus I got a tiny little rose hair spiderling, but Dad threatened myself and others with serious consequences if the spider ever got loose in the house, but well, just a few weeks later, the spider escaped, but i just knew I would never find it again so I told my Dad it died plus never brought it up againâ€¦ That was 10 years ago, then just Last year I was going to see my parents when Dad mentioned to myself and others that she had dropped a necklace down into Heating plus A/C ductwork vent.
I told her I would see if I could find it for her.
I removed the grate plus found the necklace plus a spider web. Then I saw the spider. It was an adult rose hair tarantula. The unquestionably 1 I had lost as a kid was here in the ductwork plus grown up plus healthy. It took a little bit of doing even though I was able to coax the spider into a jar. Dad was shocked when she saw what I had found. It was then that I finally fessed up to losing the spider a decade beforeâ€¦ Both of my parents were a bit aggravated however they also thought it was kind of funny. I told them that I would pay for a professional ductwork cleaning plus take the spider to my new home where they would never see it again. That made them happier. I just can’t think my little spider survived plus thrived all of this time, undetected, in the ductwork.
