Bold Spider Not As Scared Of You As Your Parents Promised

BOSTON — An inadvisable game of chicken is currently underway in a South End bathroom as a nude Sean O’Connor begins to wonder if the spider currently sitting on his shower head is, in fact, as afraid of him as his parents swore it would be.

Twenty-two minutes into the standoff, neither O’Connor nor the spider has ceded any ground.

There will be no winners here.
