One of the spawn of Ungoliant was on my front porch!!! Can't Post

So, yesterday evening my mom had gotten home from the store and I went out to help her bring in the groceries, and what do I find laying there on the front porch? This HUGE, brown, dead wolf spider! I am not kidding about it being huge. That things body was about 1 3/4 inches long, not quite as thick as my thumb, and it's sort of stripy, skinny legs had to be at least as long as my pinky finger! On top of that, laying right next to it was a giant, dead centipede, the body of which was fairly short, but of similar thickness to the spider, and of course, there were a whole lot of big, centipede legs.

It was the weirdest thing because they were both just laying there next to each other, totally limp like they had just suddenly dropped dead. They weren't even squished like if someone had stepped on them or mangled like if a bird had caught them and dropped them there or anything. To say the least, I grabbed a stick and poked at them both to make sure they were really dead and thankfully, they were. Of course, by this time my mom was wondering what on earth I was looking at and why I kept dancing around and squealing, "EEEEEWWWWW!!" When I told her what I'd found, I don't think she believed me at first because the look on her face said, "Really?" Then she went up to the porch and looked for herself and yelled, "Oh my goodness, those things are HUGE!!" Then she started dancing around and squealing "EEEEEWWWWW!!" right along with me.Crazy

The only thing we can figure is that, since wolf spiders and centipedes are both poisonous and the larger ones occasionally get in fights, they must have been fighting up there on the porch, bitten each other, and then died where they stood. My mom took an old magazine and pushed their bodies off the porch so we wouldn't have to look at them any more. I'm surprised I didn't have nightmares. Gross, icky and double EEEEEWWW!!!Crazy

"When life won't play along
And right keeps going wrong
And I can't seem to find my way
I know where I am found
So I won't let it drag me down
Oh, I'll keep dancing anyway"
