Spider MAN!


Lindsay and I went to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles because we wanted to see the Dino Lab! When we purchased the tickets they said for three dollars more we could see the Spider Pavilion! Feeling the halloween spirit we both enthusiastically said yes. 

The Spider Pavilion is just outside the museum in a greenhouse type tent. We walked through a plastic curtain and inside we did not find a spider pavilion but a SPIDER KILL ZONE! 
 
Huge spiders on webs and in the bushes. My first thought was this is how they feed the spiders. They get two healthy unsuspecting people, trick them into thinking they are going to see cool spiders behind three inches of plexi glass, and then watch as the spiders feast on them. 

Even though our lives were clearly in danger, I wanted to get my three dollars worth, so we walked through the maze of arachnids, keeping our limbs very close to our bodies.

Every time we'd turn around there would be another eight legged beast setting up to jump on our face.

After a bit, Lindsay turned to me and asked:

"Can we go now?"

And I said:
"Are you not enjoying this?"

We got out of the Spider Pavilion with our lives intact, but even as I type this I still feel their poisonous legs tickling my skin...that may never go away.

The Dino Lab was super cool!

I find it brilliant that your last post was "Those Bite". Juxtaposed with this makes for another hilarious context.

Also, your stuff is amazing. Die laughing everytime I come here.

We were going to take our kids to this exhibit last Saturday. I'm actually glad we didn't. Although I think one of my boys would've liked it.
