as brave as a...well...man

last night around midnight the little girl in the house Dem rang me.

ring ring ringringringringring

I was wondering why she was ringing me

'hello?'
'WANYU, THERE'S A SPIDER!!'

OK. Let me think. Situation: The man-of-the-house partying in Prague, hmm, Dem looking 120% intimidated, I, I, I... (as scared as her) I said 'don't worry, I will take care of this!'

So, in the end, the poor 8-leg-thingy had to be kicked out by me (it might still be there somewhere in our backyard...) And Dem didn't have a nightmare...well, she did, but nothing to do with spiders...

Oh! You didn't just kick it out! YOU PICKED IT UP!!! Amazing!

And to think this was the girl who was having nightmares about slugs!

and i did see one slug a few nights ago. (had never seen one before) (andy it looked just like that pic you sent me, about the same size as well)
now there're two in our backyard...coz the man-of-the-house kicked it out of the lounge (well, he literally picked it up by his fingers i think) but allow it to stay in our backyard. we saw another one there, and like i just told Dem-the-little-girl, that other slug must have had been waiting for this slug-in-our-lounge to one day come to meet up in the backyard, how romantic indeed.

Wow, perhaps they will have baby slugs someday!

dem, what were you on about the snail thingy? did you say a snail is actually a slug or something like that? i'm very confused now...
