Revenge Of the Termites

Alas, after a brief but pleasant stay in my bathroom Pierre has died. Although he only lived with us for a couple of weeks, he touched every single one of our hearts. He was a great spider, a noble spider, who didn't only care about himself. He gave us all something to do while in the bathroom, and for that we are eternally grateful. Oh, I already miss him, the way he used to climb around on his web looking innocent, until an insect would happen to bump into it, and then he'd swoop down and suck its innards. The way he would spend hours, motionless, as if to say "what next? For what purpose am I alive? Who will remember me when i die?" Well we all will, Pierre. You left us all with a legacy (and a bunch of your adorable little children)and a web full of decaying termites. May you rest in peace in your watery grave, and bless your children to follow in the termite chomping footsteps of their father. Amen.

DOODLE!!!! I'm ashamed of you! I can't believe you said that! And you thought I was crazy!! (just kidding...I'll remind you of the convo...the one about calling stuff when people are dead...)
Anyways, that was beautiful. You brought a river of tears to my eyes. *sniff* may he rest in peace in the Israeli sewage system. Amen.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

U should definitely get the cops involved with the termites, or theyll start drowning the humans!

Yeah, can you write it and email it to me? Or you can post it on your blog if you have really nice things to say about me lol.

jacob-arent u glad u read my blog, and know the backround of the stickers?
shaina- i started but i felt it was an ayin hara 2 write a eulogy about a living person. (besides there isnt much emotion when the person ur writing about is alive and kicking, so its hard 2 write)
