So I made my plan. I needed some BIG artillery... couldn't find any, I just moved here. No bug spray, napalm, golf clubs, but I did locate a sandal.... I lifted the tank and the freaked out fast-moving spider (from hel), l ran away, not wanting to be killed and all, and I chased him across the room, not wanting him to remain in my house, and I managed to smash him against the wall with a hard sandal.
Big, dead, steaming, spider hull laying shipwrecked on my tile floor...
I felt like shit for doing this to such a fine intelligent creature, merely wanting to extend it's life.
The spider never tried to hurt me, yet I assaulted it with extreme prejudice and finally murdered the poor thing!. I did this out of fear. I felt I had no choice since I couldn't just pick the deadly thing up and send it on it's merry way. I felt horrible for doing this.... I am not the Buddhist I thought I was.
Later this day I found a small millipede crawling up the wall of my bedroom. I gently picked him up with a piece of card board and gingerly placed him on the out side rail of our staircase.
I saw the millipede two hours later on the side of an outdoor wall still enjoying life...
Life is cheap here...
