In a cabin in the woods…
Light Princess: Eek! A spider!
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.
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.
