Too funny to stop

There was a spider on our windowsill again this morning.  A small, hairy brown spider, not even that big.  I say "again" because it's not unusual to find spiders on our windowsills, especially now that it's spring.  We've even spent two weeks on good "bugs", what defines an insect, and why spiders are actually good.  Of course, you wouldn't know any of that judging from the kids' reactions to the spider this morning.  All six of them were literally screaming and one even got up on a table (closer to the window) to try to get away from it.  Once it was dead, of course they were all rushing to see it.  I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but it's only a spider!
