Oh, I know. Real spiders are lovely creatures. The day I wrote this I had been reading this poem and I remembered having seen that phrase in a T-shirt. I guess I was thinking too of where the fear of being hurt in a site like this one comes from. .../The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den, For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again; So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly, And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly. Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing: 'Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing; Your robes are green and purple--there's a crest upon your head; Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead.' Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly, Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by; With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew, Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue; Thinking only of her crested head--poor foolish thing! At last, Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast. He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den, Within his little parlour--but she ne'er came out again!/ "THE SPIDER AND THE FLY" by Mary Howitt

Yes, what's to fear from a spider? They get a lot of bad press. And the bigger ones, like a tarantula, really make good pets.

I kind of like spiders as long as they are not venemous.They eat the other pests and keep them under control.
