I have killed to protect my child...... [Sep. 12th, 2002|10:35 am]
Verminius Rex
I moved a pile of fabric to find a scrap of purple that I need to get another yard of for another Parimono, and a huge spider startles the hell out of me. It's trying to go in the opposite direction, but it's on the floor where my daughter crawls. I try to smush it a few times and it dodges, then makes a dash in my daughter's direction.

I killed it with my bare hands just 6 inches from my child. Future boyfriends of Pari beware, I have already killed for my child.

There was no real danger, of course, but that was one big friggin' spider, and I just wanted to use the "I have killed to protect my child" as a subject line. Why don't the spiders stay on the ceiling eating bugs like they are supposed to? Floor is mine, ceiling is yours. Kill the bugs and you won't be evicted. Simple deal.

There is a social contract. The spider broke it.

You know, I was talking with radcliffe just last night about this very thing. I said that I wouldn't mind a mouse or spider in my house as long as they behave. Like the mouse doesn't chew up my mattress or pee on my bed or anything. And the spider sticks in the corners and certainly doesn't make any hostile moves toward kimono wearing babies. The spider broke the rules. He had to pay. I'd put his curled up body on a toothpick as a reminder to his friends.
