I snorted a spider today, so there’s that

It was a very little one.

I was biking across a bridge and felt a strand of web across my face and next thing I know I’ve snorked up something little and insect-y. Worst part, I was at a dangerous section of my ride where the sidewalks are too narrow and I didn’t dare stop. I had to huff until I came to a wider spot.

And that’s the most exciting thing that happened to me today. It’s the Friday before a long weekend. Rejoice!

Lil’ Ms Weasel rode home on an e-bike (not diesel !)
Crossing a bridge on her way.
On that bridge was a spider which she snorted inside her
Cause snorting mere cocaine is passé.

I got nuthin’…..

I knew of a weasel
Who snorted a spider
That wiggled and jiggled
And tickled inside her.

She snorted a spider
But not a fly
You shouldn’t ever snort a fly
Or a pumpkin pie

My neighbor lady knocked on my door yesterday and asked if I had some water she could throw on a spider to get the arachnid away from her door head jamb. I just walked over to her door with my trusty fly swatter and annihilated the poor beastie.

A lot of ladies are afraid of spiders, especially the “wolf spider” kind of hairy ones.

General advice to the world at large: Do not ride bicycles or especially motorcycles in Florida during love bug season.

I do the spider-web dance about once a week. They love my porch and patio.

@Uncle Al – heck, for that matter don’t drive your car on a highway at that time either. Found that out the hard way driving from Dallas to Houston on I45 several years ago.

Yuck. Never seen the like.

And I like the furry spiders way better than the other types. I find it intriguing when they “look” up at you if you catch them for release outdoors.

Dang, Bob, couldn’t you hold on until December 12?

Congratulations to @RushBabe, picker of Bob Barker in the current CDP! And Stoaty has the topic of next Friday’s post already set up, too.

You’d have thought one of us would have picked Prigozhin after his little temper tantrum marching on Moscow a month ago.

He might as well have just shot himself that night.

I ain’t askeered I’m just not a fan. I had a cobweb across my face in my own kitchen the other morning, between the coffee machine and the fridge so now I have to move. I don’t think I could have held it together very long with one up my nose. Good on ‘yer.

Stealing someone else’s comment “Bob made it as close to a hundred as possible without going over”.

DurnYankee – had someone picked Prigozhin “after his little temper tantrum marching on Moscow a month ago”, I would have protested the choice as a violation of Rule Zero -[can’t pick] nobody whose execution date is circled on the calendar.

@Some Vegetable.
What! I’m shocked! Shocked! to think you would believe that some thug threatening the Russian government and marching his army of other thugs across Russia towards Moscow would somehow find himself on some list marked for termination!

Okay, I’d have to agree with your protest.

For them to take this long to make that happen, gives me serious pause for question about the effectiveness of the actual Russian military and Russian government. I have no words for how insane that was, it sounds more like some incredibly low budget thriller out of Hollyweird.

A friend of mine once “caught” a moth via her wide-open mouth during a motorcycle ride with her then boyfriend. A visit to the doctor and extraction of said moth with a very long set of tweezers cured her of talking while motorcycling forever more.
