Spiderberries...

Strawberries are one of my favorite foods... I LOVE them. I usually buy 2 great big flats at Costco a week....Although I am now trying to get past my fear of eating them... The other day I was cutting the tops off strawberries as I grabbed one I happened to look inside it and saw a spider... I thought euuw gross and chucked it in the sink. I then told my husband what had happened. He came to see. He picked the strawberry up an there was no spider to found... (It must have been alive, I knew I saw a spider)
Ever since then I have been a little freaked out.... Every time I have strawberries I have to cut them up, I was thinking to me self (I am so mental... what are the chances I would ever see another spider in the middle of a strawberry???) just then I cut one open and "There was a spider right in the middle and it was alive!!!"
Well, I have decided I am not a mental case.... In all three spiders were found!!! I was taking to my sister and she also had found a spider in the middle of her strawberry!!! I decided to take a picture..... So you could all see what I am taking about!!!!

I will never be able to eat another spider-berry again without cutting into it.... I guess this rules out Chocolate covered strawberries for me.... Oh, and I wonder how many spiders have been eaten with out anyone even knowing it???

That's really disturbing. Maybe it's just the Costco strawberries and all others are safe...

Yuck! That reminds me of the time I found a spider in my raspberry... only that time I pulled it out of my mouth because it was "chewing weird." That was like 12 years ago and I still have a hard time eating them...

Oh, I would die if I had to pull it out of my mouth.... It is a little hard for me to eat strawberries now.... Like Ben said "he feels like he has to gut it like a fish before he eats it!"
