The Eight-Legged Friend

If you fear the eight-legged snacks *spiders*, you may not wish to read the rest of this post.  The other day I came face to face with one of the most enormous spiders to make it into the library and survive without having the unfortunate demise of being squished.  

 The eight-legged snack spider had been carefully caught in Sandy's barn, saved in a plastic container, and left in Barb L.'s office for her to find.  (If the spiders are that big in Sandy's barn, I'd hate to see what the other insects look like)  Barb had a much better reaction to it than Newbie Lillian did (Newbie Lillian says I have to stop calling her that because she isn't the Newbie anymore, but I'm the boss.  I get to decide when someone isn't a "newbie" anymore.).  

Newbie Lillian took one look at it, shuddered, and practically ran away hyperventilating.  She was very easy to scare for the rest of the day.  Especially after Barb brought it out to the Youth Desk for everyone to admire and Newbie Lillian had to work in near proximity to it.  

When I eventually found the large creature, it was trying to escape.  Naturally, the humans wouldn't let her escape.  But I think it would have been a lot more fun if she had been outside the container.  

To show how eager I was to be friends, I tried to play with her from outside the container.  I don't think she liked me very much though.  Maybe she thought I would make her into a snack.  

I have no idea why she would think that.  

I'm off to look for more snacks friends,
