Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
Did you ever see a spider poop before? Well I have now and wanted to tell someone about it. I sure wish I had taken my camera with me but shucks I was just taking the trash out to the can. I was not expecting a big spider to challenge me for his right to have the flies buzzing around the can. He (not sure of male or female) had a black body about half the size of a thumbnail with white spots on it. The front legs were about an inch long and I believe it had green fangs. It looked something like this: black spider with white marks.
When I started to raise the can lid the spider raised up on its hind legs as if to make himself look bigger. I can just imagine his thoughts. You don’t scare me big giant person. This is my territory and I’ll fight you for it. I just stared intently at the spider. Well, while reared up in a fighting position, the spider pooped. White poop. No, it was not webbing which also comes from the back end. It was poop that made a splat. Oh you poor thing. I guess I scared him so much he pooped. All I could do is laugh. Out loud. I gently opened the can lid from the other side and pushed the small bag inside. I returned a few minutes later with my camera but the spider was gone.
What a nice staycation I’m having. I’m starting to see the humor of life again.
