TBH, my reaction would have been similar- just filled with more “colorful metaphors.”
Generally speaking, I am a live and let live kinda gal. And that does usually extend to spiders. My logical sides knows they do way more good than harm (if they actually do any harm at all and most don’t.) However, when those little eight legged buggers startle me, my emotional KILL IT!!!! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!! side takes over. So hats off this weather guy for just a little bit of a scream when a giant spider invaded his green screen space.
