Overheard at our house, giant arachnid edition

Our porch roof and railing is currently housing a rather large spider.  I think it may be nocturnal, because it has been out there every early (pre-sunrise) morning and post-sunset evening, but I have yet to see it in daylight.  It took a few days for John to have an opportunity to see it, but he finally did.  We were looking at it this morning before I left for work:

Me: I think he has a friend.  There’s a little spider too.  Same coloring, but small.

John: You know, the bigger spiders are usually the females.

Me: Does this spider make me look fat?
