I don’t like bugs. I don’t like things that skitter. I especially don’t like spiders.
Some bugs are ok, you know, like ladybugs and pill bugs. The general rule is the more legs it has, the more I don’t like it. Not a hard and fast rule, but you can bet you’re bottom dollar that I spiders and millipedes top the list of my least favorites.
Don’t get me wrong, I can be friends with spiders. Why, just look at Abdul! But he kept to himself in his proper habitat, as he should.
This week I present to you, for a limited time in our garage, the 7-legged spider from the depths of wild Maryland:
I call him Winslow.
Somebody stole poor Winslow’s leg in the dead of the night. He still seems quite agile though. Or maybe he is a 7-legged bug. He looks like a spider though, which of course makes him a spider.
We all know that.
