Fun At Work

I have a new desk-mate - as in a small spider. He's doing laps across the top of my monitor - and he's been doing so for over an hour now.

I don't want to kill him. He's not doing anything wrong. Just occasionally he's making me question my eye sight - you know .... when you get those little flicks of dust that cross your vision .... except in my case it's a little tan coloured spider.

I may have to name him.

What a sweet entry!

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

Name him fast because they don't last long, do they?

I had a moth flitting about my monitor the other night. I'm not as nice as you are. He met his death at the hand of my baseball cap. THWAP!

Poolie - Thanks!
Kathy - if it had been a moth - THWAP from me too! A itsy bitsy teeny weeny spider - all I could think of was Charlotte's, and we all know how that ended.

AUUGGHHH! As soon as I see an insect scurrying in this house I freak out and then kill it.

Uh, so have fun with that thing.

Lin said...

Yeah, no. I'm not a big spider gal and I would think I would have freaked out and ran screaming for someone to save me. You are very brave. And as much as I love creatures, I believe spiders need to be squished. Well, the ones near me anyway.

I am not so tolerant of bugs indoors. Outside I feel quite terrible if I accidentally step on one. Inside they become my enemy. Except for ladybugs - they never bother me regardless of the setting.
