I tend to pop out for fresh air after dinner on nights when I'm home. The neighbor has a few free-roaming cats who like to visit, and they know I will give them attention.

HUGE FREAKIN' SPIDER!!! It had come down the web about halfway, and I froze to make sure I wasn't disturbing the web any further.

I then backed up, she jumped down, and we left the big ol' arachnid to exist in peace.
