Portia

Some spiders spin webs,
Ensnaring the unwary.
Other spiders sneak.
They pluck the web to draw out
And devour spinners of webs.

Because even the unlikeliest samurai ought to come with at least some superpowers for the kami to work with, haha!

I know some of them well. Great poem Ody. I am testing my WP account, this is a new one, so will be also commenting from my old one.

You have a very deep soul Ody. Your poetry is catching and makes me think inward.

Jumping spiders aside, a woman named Portia driving a Porsche could also be dangerous and scary, even for non-arachnophobes.

Jumping spiders scare the shit out of me!!! Makes me want to shoot them all!!! Now that my felon husband is gone, I can finally buy a gun. Any suggestions??? Yes, it’s me!!!😍

Hey there! If you have a good range nearby, talk to an instructor about which guns you might try for your needs. If you don’t want to carry concealed, that says full size to me. I shoot 9mm. It’s a good place to start. Some to consider would be a Glock 17, Smith M&P, or a Sig320. If the range has rental guns try them! You’ll figure out which one you like. Those brands also have guns in smaller sizes but larger means less recoil. So, there you go. Then take some training. Hope you are well. Don’t shoot spiders,… Read more »

My 6’4 240 pound son screamed about a spider in the bathtub. My wife came out with a piece of toilet paper concealing a daddy long legs. That was a few years ago. Tuesday he is enlisting in the National Guard. Hope he doesn’t encounter any spiders in basic…….

Lol, but I don’t blame him. Julie has to deal with the spiders in this house. Mice, rats, snakes, all kinds of wigglies don’t bother me. But some six or eight eyed fuzzy monstrosity starts eyeballing me, and jumping around, getting ready to leap at me . . . I go batshit. Your son is smart.

Spiders are really smart. When I lived in the country I had a huge black and yellow spider build her web every night directly across our front door. She did this to catch bugs from the porch light. But every morning I would carefully come out and knock her web down because the door opened right in the middle of it. First time it scared me because I didn’t know it was there. Second time I carefully opened the front door but still knocked it down. On the fourth day, I carefully opened the door and she had moved her… Read more »
