3 BOLIVIAN BROTHERS THOUGHT A BLACK WIDOW BITE WOULD TURN THEM INTO SPIDERMAN
So I vaguely remember being a kid and seeing anxious adults looking on. Some adults were so afraid of imaginations, we couldn’t play make believe in front of them. Too dangerous! And while I don’t recall what the game was, it was innocuous and innocent. But imaginations can run wild sometimes. Especially with kids. Dangerously so. And that is true here, big time. 3 Bolivian were herding the family goats. But then they found a black widow spider. Then, they had the grand idea to make the black widow spider bite each of them. Why? That’s right, to become Spiderman.
MOTHER FOUND ALL THREE HYSTERICAL, BROTHERS END UP IN HOSPITAL FOR TREATMENT
But as you should know, black widow spiders are incredibly poisonous. So to say this was a dangerous idea is a huge understatement. When the 3 brothers’ mother found them, all three were very upset. I’d expect so. They were each in danger of dying from a black widow bite. So she immediately took them all to a health center. But they needed more serious treatment and transferred to a hospital a day later. But as a parent, I can’t even imagine. And yes, that’s just a saying. I can imagine all too well indeed.
BLACK WIDOW VENOM IS NO JOKE, BOYS IN HOSPITAL FOR A WEEK TO RECOVER FROM BITES
So why did they need the hospital? Well, because a day after their respective bites all three had serious fevers. But not only that, they had tremors and muscular pains all over their bodies. Black widow venom is serious, serious stuff. So serious, in fact, that they only left the hospital a week later. Fortunately, they did all leave the hospital, alive and fully recovered. But I suspect that they will never forget the experience. Nor how awful an idea it was. Hopefully, the boys will still have their comics, and Marvel Universe movies.
