I'm really glad I'm not suffering from arachnophobia as I just discovered the biggest and nastiest looking spider I have ever seen, crawling across my living room floor. It was even bigger than the one that I spotted in the ceiling above me in Maldives while thinking :
That stain looks like a spider but much, much bigger! (then the stain moved)
I didn't kill my flat spider! I captured it in a zip lock bag, zipped the bag, brought it to the balcony, unzipped and let it fall with the bag as a parachute. If my cat survived the fall, so will Mr Spider.
Had I been Chinese, I would have eaten it!
