creepy crawlers

the other day while driving in the car, i hear the mabster screaming from the back seat. i turn around and see her pointing to the window behind me and saying, "there's a spider, mommy!!" okay. so i try to stay cool, calm, and collected considering spiders give me the heebie jeebies. i continued to ask her questions...

me: is it big?


me: is it moving?

yes, it's crawling towards lylabug. (as she slowly moves her arm down as if she was pointing and following it)

me: ACK! (frantically trying to keep one eye on the road as i keep turning back and forth to spot it on the window.) i see nothing and then say again, "where is it?"

mabster: (much higher tone) there it is!!

(nervous as hell and about to pull the car over to kill the creepy crawler when i look at the mabster and catch her smiling)...

(then the light bulb goes off in my head)

me: abby, is it a real spider or a pretend spider?

mabster: pretend! (as she evilly laughs for her own amusement)

lordy child, you are going to be the death of me.
