Too often…

So we make our choices

When there is no choice

And we listen to their voices

Ignoring our own voice…

Bees, Bugs, and Spiders! Oh My!

I’ve been promising myself that someday I will start posting here again, but since my life as taken on a will of its own, dragging me right along with it, I never seem to get that “Round Tuit” I need to get started. But today, I thought I would at least try to get started by adding a post about an experience that happened to me about two weeks ago. If anyone still reads this blog, I hope you enjoy:

October 10, 2014

Well this is a first for me. It’s 7:00 a.m. I’m cozy in my bed, too lazy to get up early since it’s fall break, when I feel something crawling across my arm. At first, in my grogginess, I think it’s a cat, since felines regularly walk on me for sport. But then I realize that, though they are fuzzy, those legs are definitely too small for a cat, and besides, my cat is locked out of the bedroom. Needless to say, I am suddenly wide awake and making a mad dash toward the light switch. I turn it on and look down at the bed to see… a wolf spider sitting on the quilt! In my panic, I grab some (lots of) toilet paper, chase the spider down (wolf spiders are incredibly fast), and grab it, relishing in the crunchy sound of victory that follows. I rush to the toilet, throw my victim in, and flush! (All the while thinking that my friend, Max, would have wanted me to gently put the spider outside). The spider swims around, frantically, in an attempt to escape, but finally, the last of the hairy legs go swirling down the pipes. Did I, like many of the younger generation, grab my phone to take a selfy with the spider to accompany this post? No, I did not. Never even thought of it. But I swear this story is true even without photo documentation to prove it. And for the record, I do like spiders though I prefer seeing them in an outdoor setting, and I usually do take the time to put bugs who stray into my house back into the sunlight. This is also true for the giant bumble bees who venture inside the building I work in. Yet in spite of my humanitarian efforts toward insects, we WILL be spraying for bugs today at my house… Alas, I may never sleep soundly again…
