The Spider that ran …

Putting my boots on after lunch I noticed what looked like a squashed spider on the floor. Figuring it must have been under my boots, I nudged it towards the door, whereupon it grew 7 legs and scurried like crazy across the floor. Being polished porcelain tiles the spider didn’t make much ground, so I nudged it a bit more with the toe of my boot till it was outside.
It was the craziest spider I’d seen in a long time. If anyone knows what this “walking smudge” actually is, let me know eh?
