I found cause to kill a spider today…It was in the bathroom and as I was standing there, as we gentlemen do, and I spied him on the wall. Now in itself that is ok for a spider to be but the issue for me is that when I come back later he will have spun a web across the bathroom and I will find myself tangled in it.
It’s that time of year around here when the spiders spin webs across things like footpaths and so often you don’t see them until you are tangled and then worried that you have a giant spider crawling on your back about to sink its fangs into you.
When I walk at this time of year I have taken to carrying a stick with me to ward off the webs if I see them.
You see a lot of webs around this way. I admire them so long as they are not in my path. They are a marvel of nature are they not?
In a way it’s their way of survival isn’t it.
Humans go out to work to earn money to survive. Their work enables them to buy the food they need. The humble spider works to spin a web so as to catch the food it needs to survive. It’s all relative isn’t it.
Anyway I thought I’d jot that down.
