I walked outside into my courtyard last night to put some garbage into the rubbish bins and I walked full face into a massive spider web. Full face.
There are banana palms in my neighbour's garden and a couple of the large ones have fronds that lean out and over our adjoining fence. Last weekend I noticed that there was a spider building a web from one of the fronds down and across where I would normally walk. Thinking to myself Oh, this can't be good I cut through the bits of web holding the bottom of it in place, so that i could duck under it to water my pot plants. Since then I've looked to see if the web was there, and a couple of times it has been, but most of the time it hasn't been.
Then last night I was not quite so mindful. The worst thing, previously I had seen the spider and it was a big one.
I danced, I screeched, I basically did a Mia Michaels inspired 'contemporary' dance routine but without music, style or grace.
