spider webs

Damn I hate those nasty things. Earlier I was riding through the paved forest trail staying far away from the trees, and then I feel it, that string feeling on my arm. I was like oh shoot. And then I felt it on my other arm and my left leg. Ah I was probably covered in it. I hate spiders too. I was just waiting for it to droop in front of my face from my hair, or feel a bite on my arm or something. Even if I try to rub those things off they're still all over. Gar spiders At least the webs are off me now

When I was knee high to a grasshopper, I was strolling through the
cornrows at grandad's farm one sunny day. Lost in thought, happy as
a clam. For some reason I happened to look up, and inches from my face
was the nastiest, hairy-legged, giganticus spider you'd never want to meet.

Since that day I've been immune to the charms of country life.

hehe.

After being "webbed", though, there may be discussion!

I had the same experience as a kid in my grandma's garden - huge yellow and black spider with a web spun between the sweet corn. Dang, I hate spiders!

I love spiderwebs. Probably because I'm an engineer and really admire the amazing structural integrity of those things. Plus it's always fun to see parker swinging from building to building in midtown.
