I know I promised to start writing about my more recent stories, but my free-range pet spider, Boris, is getting so big…I just wanted to acknowledge it. How long do spiders live, anyway? I first discovered him when he was still all white, and smaller than a quarter, building his home in my desk lamp back in February. Well, he loves that home, because he is still there. He is much bigger now. His web is cob-ish and fluffy, rather than the neat, shiny threads one usually sees from spiders. I hope he stays.
Of course, I know that arachnids of his ilk may not have a long lifespan. Still.
