Shower spider

I was getting in the shower, turning on the water and a real honest to goodness itsy bitsy spider was making a run for the drain.  And one thought lead to another.

I've got a son who is arachnophobic.  No idea when that started but when he was really little and lying in bed I'd do the 'Itsy, bitsy spider' thing with my fingers and all.  It occurred to me that if he had been afraid of spiders already what I thought was a cute song was a horror story to him.

Cut to: Spider that seems small to the adults in the world is actually a full size baby killing arachnid moving with force and meaning towards the water spout which he knows leads to a dinner of child.

Happy music: The rain saves the baby by washing the baby killing spider down and away.

But, ominous music: The rain is gone, the sun is out, the spider slowly, menacingly, creeps towards the water spout again.

Cut to: The baby's face as he knows what is coming.

Just a song?

You decide.

Both of my sons are a little strange and love horror movies.  Makes me wonder.
