Funny!

I have been working on crafting a huge spiderweb on the front of our house. It is literally at least 10ft from one end to the other. And, it looks like a huge spider built it, not just a bunch of filmy stuff spread out. In the middle, is a big spider. Well, today was a perfect opportunity to use it. Joy was in the front lawn trying to adjust one of the strings (one of her favorite pastimes) and there was some teenage boy coming up the sidewalk just down from our house on his bike. So, I opened the front door (I had been observing from inside) and said, "Little girl, please be careful around the web, the spider might get you" just as the kid was riding past Joy on his bike. A moment later there was a SMASH! The kid, who was sucked in by my joke and was watching Joy and the spider instead of where he was going, ran into the trashcans on the sidewalk! It was stinking hilarious! Let me tell you, it made my day.
