This quickie little poem by Masin Persina over at Everyday Genius made me think of my wife and her deathly fear of spiders. Britt once had a similar experience in her car, but if I remember the story right, she wasn’t nearly as calm-headed and almost jerked the wheel into a bridge embankment.

On My Way To School
A tiny spider swung into the passenger seat,
brandishing its tiny arms like a hijacker.

It had spunk, I’ll give it that. I made a stain of it
with my monogrammed mug: MEP.

Read the rest!
