We have a telephone on the desk here, right next to the computer. I picked it up to make a call, glanced at the ear section and saw, right there, a spider, moving around in spiderish ways. Shock! I could have put that phone up to my ear and put that spider right at my earhole, where it could have gone right in with its wiggly, wriggly spidery legs!

Saved by a glance. It is the equivalent of pounding your slipper on the ground before putting it on in Morocco, to dislodge the nightly scorpion.

Have you ever had that happen to you?
