The itsy bitsy spider came crawling out of Dottie Brown's kitchen sink, but she was just happy it didn't happen while she was eating the grapes that carried the black widow into her home.

We call grapes "scorpion food" at my house. I put a bunch of grapes in a large bowl and was running water over them when a scorpion swam to the surface. Scary looking creature, that! I called the grocery and told them to tell their produce workers to be careful.

In my family we tell legends of the great city of the scorpions which is built in the shape of a giant bra. This is because on a holiday in Italy my mother hung her bra out the window to dry, and when she pulled it back in there was a large scorpion inside. (My father decided incorrectly it was a dead scorpion and got very frightened when it reacted to being poked with a pencil).

I am arachnophobic, but not scared of scorpions at all.
