We Called it Fluffy
During mysenior year of college, there was a spider that lived on our stoop. We had these wrought iron railings that provided a magnificent substrate for web-building. This spider found these nooks and these crannies and decided to make them its home. We called it Fluffy. Fluffy the spider lived on our railings for months and gave me more joy than I could have possibly imagined. It made the most intricately beautiful webs in our railings. At night, I would drink mint tea on my stoop and watch the light dance across the silky webs in the evening breeze. We enjoyed these webs so much that we bought crickets from a local pet store to feed Fluffy. Fluffy gave us fresh geometry for weeks in gratitude for the cricket offerings.
