A few minutes ago I was going to light some tea light candles that sit on the dining table. But, oh, surprise! There's a fat, brown spider hanging out on one of them. And I'm about ninety-nine percent sure that it's dead (tested by blowing on it) but it's still standing on all its legs as if it's alive.
Option one: turn the candle holder upside down and dump the spider in the trash. Downside: the candle will also fall into the trash.
Option two: light the wick and burn the spider. Downside: morbid, in a small and strange way.
Option three: introduce Rufus into the situation, and he might eat it. Because, um… cats eats spiders, right? Isn't that how it works?
