With that attitude, you would get along well with my mother-in-law......
LOL ... but here's a spooky thought, with the anonymity of posters on the internet, I may in fact BE your mother-in-law!!! (that's gotta be enough to freak us all out)

(just kidding, I'm actually a reincarnation of the third cousin, five times removed from Tsar Nicholas II... and the bastard child of Grigori Rasputin, who, it is rumored, also suffered from arachnophobia, which almost makes us relatives and keeps me on topic. Hence my hopeless paranoia)

It's enough to make us all laugh, and at the same time weep uncontrollably. :)
