I have a Spider story.
A couple of weeks ago, at work, I had to sprint to the bathroom. We have a private family bathroom up the hall from our office suite. I ran into the bathroom, and as I am undoing my pants, I see on the floor under the sink a big spider. About the size of a quarter, legs and all (that's big to me). I try not to kill spiders unless I have to. If they are in the apartment, then I apologize but squish them. I've been bitten by a spider while in bed (I assume - small puncture marks that turn into a rash). But outside or other places, I try to leave them alone, because they eat other pesky bugs, most importantly mosquitos.
Anyway, I see the spider, and I said, "Stay right there and I won't squish you! Just don't move!" Because I really had to go, and I didn't want to kill him if it wasn't necessary. The spider froze in place and didn't move. Later, when I put on my jacket, it created a breeze which made him move a little. I said to him (or her), "I wouldn't stay here if I were you. Somebody else might squish you!"
Later in the day, I went back into that bathroom and looked around for the spider. It was in the corner on the floor behind the door, all folded up like it was trying to hide. I said, "I wouldn't stay in here! You should go up through the vent!"
So. The next morning as I was coming into work, I walked up the long hallway on the first floor, and I saw an identical spider tromping up the hallway like it had somewhere to go! I have no idea whether it was the same spider or not. But I texted Steve with a Robot Chicken joke: Spider going down the hall - WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU!? Steve replied: Spider with an attitude!
So today's drawing was inspired by the Spider with an Attitude because it can do what it wants!
