    I will admit to not being keen on spiders...I recall working on a lake for many years, and the wolf or dock spiders were just humongous...

    And not just because of the spider.

    Pizza on the floor is just too sad.

    Definitely not offended because these are your feelings and feelings are valid. I would suggest we probably should move on. I shouldn't have shared even the outline of that story.

    That book started my phobia about spiders - it's why I don't like to kill them. I just politely ask them to leave my house.

    My 3rd grade teacher read Charlotte's Web out loud to the class over a period of a few weeks. I was free to make Charlotte a bat in my imagination.

    And "I fought the law and the law won" will hold true.

    I have been up a few mountains where I had to physically stop and calm myself down because my body/mind had such an intense 泥Anger, what are you doing, you idiot?!?! Reaction.

    Up top half dome in Yosemite, for example, I physically could not get closer than 10 yards to the lip...

    ...and then these two French rock climbers popped over the lip like it was nothing and hiked down. Followed them most of the way. Made me feel like my accomplishment was PeeWee league. 🤣

    I was like this on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.

    Of course, being on the edge of a 700-ish foot cliff with unpredictable wind gusts...yeah, I had a right to have sweaty palms/rapid pulse/etc.

    I took this photo - I think it's as close as I got. Whew. Even looking at the photo give me butterflies.

    ooh, if you get a bat caught in your hair, you have to cut it out with hedge clippers I hear.

    speaking of clippers, just got the first haircut in over six months, went with the Number 4 clippers nothing but stubble left.

    I'm in the migration path of a lot of butterflies as they head down south to Mexico.

    This is actually the right question to ask. It was just okay Pizza to begin with but we were destitute at the time and we ate the damn pizza. Plus bad Pizza is like bad sex. Which is a statement that is generally true if I'm involved in either of them.
