Nature’s Revenge

So hear my confession:

After I killed the wasp, I killed a HUGE brown spider that had taken up residency in my school office that I share with an arachnophobic. (She was rather hysterical upon seeing it.) But I suspect that it was the housefly that I swatted with a rolled up paper in my classroom that pushed the envelope just a tad far. That was the final straw. After all, it was three in three days that I had taken out.

Tonight as we walked around our neighborhood, we accidently walked through a tough spider web that stretched all the way across the road, from one side to the other. That really is impressive.  As I was removing the web from my neck, I discovered the webmaster or webmistress as it bit me. It had slipped down the v-neck of my shirt. I got it out quickly but the stinging sensation remains at the site. Now we walk most every evening at a predictable time, so it is not too hard to picture this as a retaliatory ambush.

Hopefully, I will not need to go shopping for a three-cup undergarment.

Ah, yes. Can we can we call it even?


And, no, there are no pictures with this entry!

Pretty sure not. It was pretty small but it hurt.
