I was sitting down, reclining by the heater this morning, when I sensed a moving presence and turned to the wall next to me.
I gasped "Holy shit" under my breath. I don't know how well the sense of scale is captured in this image, but this thing was bigger than a quarter. I'm terrified of spiders, but I'm simultaneously kind of impressed by just how terrifying they are, and this one was so shockingly big that I had to take a quick picture before it could move away into the vast unknown of my apartment, awaiting its chance to pop up again.
I respect spiders' roles in nature, however, breaking and entering in this apartment is punishable by death. I hope its family will understand and move elsewhere. Please. For both our sakes.
