Itsy Bitsy Spider

In a cabin in the woods…

Light Princess: Eek! A spider!

Songbird: Ah.

LP: I don't want to kill a living thing but I don't want it in my mouth.

Songbird: Why would it end up in your mouth?

LP: Humans swallow an average of 8 spiders in a lifetime.

Songbird: Go to it.

(With great verve and gusto, as well as a Kleenex-covered notepad, a hairbrush and, ultimately, the Bible, LP eviscerates the arachnid.)

LP: You're going to have to pick that up.

Songbird: …

LP: Will that blog?

Songbird: I believe it will.


Tonight we are lakeside at Kresge, awaiting the Honors Convocation, in which our boy will sit principal on the Brahms Festival Overture and the prelude to Die Meistersinger.

  2. sigh…I used to live peaacefully with spiders…back in Illinois where they were harmless – but here – EEEKKK…I smash ’em all, with out a second thought….that said.
    Enjoy your time, and the gradutation, and the concert. How wonderful!

  3. I have a sort of deal with spiders. If they don’t come into my home, I don’t trap them under a mug until someone braver than I am can put them outside safely.
    Unfortunately I don’t speak spider and have no way of telling them this, poor things.

  4. HAHAHAHAhahahahAH! I can picture the situation exactly. Great post!

  5. I am not sure why eating them is a problem. Lots of good protein in a spider.
