What was the last thing that gave you a real, authentic, tearful, hearty belly laugh? Why was it so funny?
It doesn’t happen often, but it happened today. This guy I work with was leaving work, walking through the foyer. I was at the inside door, telling him something before he left.
Then, I spotted a decent sized spider on the outside door, and said, “Is that on the inside?” Well, it was.
So, he said, “Well, if I kill it, I’ll smear it all over, what can I hit it with? Our boss will love that.”
And, I said, “Why don’t you just open the door and flick it outside?”
He was afraid if he flicked it, it would fall on him. This is a 6’2″ tall, 185 lb guy, and I was like “Seriously, you are like 2,000 times bigger than that spider!”
So, he picked up a triangular door jam thing, rubber, and proceeded to smash it with the flat side – this while the spider was on the top frame of the door.
The spider did fall, but it only fell about 8 inches down, onto the glass of the door, and then it started sliding down leaving a trail of spider goo. I went to retrieve a tissue, and watched my co-worker completely taken aback as he kept pointing to the door as the
slider spider slid, and slid, and slid – and even started getting messier towards the end of it’s 6 inch slide.
Maybe you had to be there, but I had a good belly laugh over it. Luckily, it was close to 5:00 pm so I hope I didn’t disturb anyone else, it’s a small office.
He was so freaked out by the whole thing that he left me to clean up the dead, sliding spider.
ps: If I was tall enough, I would have flicked the spider to the outside.
