Wow, sounds like me with spiders! I hate and fear them at the same time. Usually, if I find one I keep it under a cup until someone else will kill it. But if it's done something to me, like creeped me out or been on me, I kill it by some torturous method (bleach, shampoo, and cleaning solution that doesn't require me to squish or touch the spider).

When I was very little, my grandma was watching me. I was in my chair and had this vacant look on my face. I wouldn't talk or stop staring at the ceiling. My grandma had to call my grandpa home from work b/c she thought I was having a seizure or breakdown. Finally they figured it out: I was staring at a large webbed crack in the ceiling that looked like a giant spider.

You cant swat a flying roach. No walls to swat it against.

I don't know about you, but I don't like to see the word 'giant' describing any sort of insect.
