Itsy-bitsy spider Tuesday November 25, 2008, 6 comments

Many of you don’t know this, but I bring a bottle of water to work with me every morning. It’s a pretty awesome bottle, stainless steel with a really good leak-proof cap and a capacity of about 900mL.

A bottle what a spider was in

I drink most of this water throughout the day, the balance (not much) going toward the little bamboo I have in my office. I’m pretty religious about watering both it and myself.

So, this morning, like all mornings, I came into my office, unzipped my bag, and pulled out my iPhone, my Blackberry, one of my two apples and my bottle of water. I checked the iPhone and Blackberry, then put them aside on my desk, and opened the water bottle in order to pour a few drops out for the bamboo, and fill the pyrex mug I keep on my desk to drink out of. All of this was absolutely normal.

What was not normal was the pale spider carcass floating around upside down at the top of the bottle. It gave me pause – mostly to wonder how the hell it got there.

So I dumped the water out, rinsed the bottle a couple times, and refilled it from the icky water cooler we have. It’s been a while since I’ve had a really good dose of Bisphenol A anyway.

Better that then the spider, right?

You will never get super powers if you keep that up, sir.

I’m not sure I want the superpowers that Bisphenol A supplies.

I don’t want to wear a bra.

Well, not all the time…

I was referring to not eating the spider, my friend.

THWIP!

I thought it was supposed to be the spider biting me, not me biting the spider?

Would it be so bad to have a spider with the power of twelve-year veteran of web design and development, who uses the Internet as his canvas?

I think not.
