Maybe they keep it dimly lit for the good of all that is creepy and crawly, or maybe it just makes the aquariums light up all the more as you pass them by. There were long snakes, small snakes, albinos... There was even a PacMan frog, which was kinda cool. At the end of this dark corridor, they kept the spiders...big, fat hairy spiders.

I don't know where he came from, his voice alerting me to his presence, "There are actually larger spiders that live in people's basements."
His monogrammed Pet Store shirt announced he belonged there, as I raised an eyebrow wondering where this was going. "Wolf Spiders are big and they will bite. I got bit once by a Black Widow. They tell you it will kill you , but it did not do anything to me. Well, it did make me a little sick."
Looking to escape, I turned to my family, who seemed to have relocated to another zip code, and found it was just me and Spiderman and all his amazing friends. I exclaimed my astonishment at his survival, as I began to back down toward the light. I will usually talk to anyone, but this one caught me a little off guard. He followed me, making his hand walk like a spider, "You just have to watch out for the Brownie Recluses, because they don't play around when they bite."
Sure I was about to become food for the residents, I came to the end of hall, and freedom provided by putting some space and a few aisles between my new buddy and myself. "Gotta catch up with my family", I scurried away.
"Come back soon", ran shivers down my spine.
Maybe we'll buy Logan's fish online.
