My house is full of spiders. In general, I really really really do not like bugs, insects, and things with many legs in my house. I am all for them staying outside. There was one particular spider that had taken up residence behind my stove, and every morning I saw a new web spun across the back burner. I was determined to squish that spider, but she always escaped me. So, partly out of respect for her squish-dodging skills and partly out of a desire to walk my talk, I looked up Spider and tried to learn from it.
Wouldn’t you know it, turns out spiders are the guardians of ancient languages and alphabets. Perfect symbols for aspiring writers like me. So that’ll teach me to try to squish a Messenger of Wisdom. . . .
Anyway, now I have something else to add to The Wisdom List: Take the time to learn before trying to squish something.
