Death by sheet

So the other night I was over at a friends' house after a long day of packing and moving. Okay I'll admit it was few hours after work. Nonetheless I was exhausted. We were just changing the bed I would be sleeping in, putting fresh sheets on when a little spider started running along the edge of the bed.

Now picture this, my friend grabs the sheet we'd just stripped off and dives across the bed to squish the spider. All I could think about was the Austin Powers movie with the assassin who throws a shoe as his signature, and the line "Really who throws a shoe anyways?". Well from the view of that little spider all it would have seen was this giant sheet. Not something its mother would have warned it about, shoes, newspapers... brooms maybe... but a sheet? So the new quote is "Really who uses a sheet to kill a spider?!?!" Apparently my friend does.
