In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Embrace the Ick.” We are supposed to think about something that truly repulses us and then write about the amazing merits of it!
Something that is Ick and repulsive, that is easy! It’s tiny, but can be rather big at times! It crawls and can be hairy and just plain creepy! It can even jump! It may be a whole lot smaller than me, but I will be jumping higher if I see it! Yes the dreaded spider!!
The problem was thinking of the other part, amazing merits?? What possible amazing merits does it have?? But I have thought of one! It can design a very intricate web. A web that can actually look kind of pretty when the dew is on it and the light catches it just right. Thinking of a picture that another dear blogger posted. It can even write amazing words in its web! Oops, guess that is just Charlotte. Hey, if I saw a spider write words in its web, I may strongly consider letting that spider live 🙂 See I can have a heart for spiders.
Yes, I have to give the spider credit for being able to spin a web. All I ask is that it keeps its webs far away from me! 🙂
