I don't know the inner working of my first born son but I do know he is creative, smart and never, EVER lets a good idea go without follow through. I also don't know when he found the handy spool of wire or how long it took him to construct a fine looking EVIL, LARGE spider out of it. Nor do I know how he managed to be alone in my bedroom long enough to attach it to the ceiling above my side of the bed.
Perhaps he laid on the bed so he could pinpoint the exact spot my eyes would go to as I was lying down, after
I later learned, from my
"What do you know about the spider on my ceiling?" I asked through clenched teeth.
"Nothing," the innocent-faced child said. "And it sure has taken you a long time to notice it."

PS Kraut's children should read this. Surely one of them will want to avenge their poor shell-shocked Grandma. And I happen to know they are a clever bunch. I'll bet there will be stories to tell soon. Thank you, kids.
