Pierre


This is Pierre The French Cardiovascular Spider. Call him Pierre for short. He lives in my bathroom. He eats the termites and ants that used to live in my bathroom. (We were gonna name him pierre the french carnivorous spider, but we decided that cardiovascular has more syllables and sounded a lot more official of a title) The ants and termites were very entertaining to watch, scurrying around on the floor and walls, doing nothing other then scurrying. Now that Pierre has moved in we get to watch him trap them in his web and jump out on them and eat them. We hope Pierre has lots of babies cuz the termites have much more in number and we don't want them to gang up on poor little pierre.
This shabbos I stayed at a hospital. They needed volunteers so I went and had a great time. (even though I became the official wheelchair carrier up and down steps for some reason)It was awesome running up and down the hallway announcing "code blue code blue Dr doodle to emergency room dr doodle to the emergency room".

Aaaaaawwwww...he's so cute. I held one of those in my hand once. I had a diramae this past year who is SEVERELY arachnophobic.

I wonder if the spider ever feels guilty for killing all those cute furry innocent bugs. I mean spiders do have morals, don't they? BTW I am really sorry about that phone call. My friend was on the other line by mistake forgot about you.

B"H I'm glad you have a healthy attitude toward spiders. Remember how a spider saved David HaMelech?

Dearly beloved,
we are gathered here today to mourn the death of our beloved friend and spider, Pierre. He was a good spider; he took care of all the evil bugs. We sincerely hope that the termites all die for the evil act that they commited. May Pierre rest in peace, and may his children continue his wonderful work.
