Why do wolf spiders like to hang out in piles of dirty laundry?! I was just sitting on the floor of my closet sorting through the laundry when this raccoon-sized wolf spider crawled out from under my husband's dirty pants and then proceeded to laugh at me and dart underneath one of my t-shirts. It took me four or five good whacks with DJ's enormous sneaker to kill the thing. I'm still shaking. I am in no condition to be battling wolf spiders right now! I HATE spiders. I especially hate spiders that hide in dirty laundry.
