Strange Bathfellows

A spider traipsed onto my knee
While I was reading in the bath
Though most might jump and scream and flee,
I just gave a little laugh

A baby Daddy Long-Legs!
(Though really, 'twas just a son)
I shooed him back onto his web,
And continued reading on...

*title is a spin on "Strange Bedfellows" ;)

*Lessons in life are funny contest entry

    Thanks, hon. I think it's a little "cutesy", but I had fun with this one. Definitely less serious than most of my pieces. Thanks for dropping in for the review :)

    Thanks, bud. I don't often write "humorous" pieces, but this actually happened the other night and that first line about him traipsing onto my knee popped into my head. Thanks for the read and reply, Don :)

    That's a very droll and hilarious way of putting it, Joseph; thanks for the chuckle. Love your quote; I'm having a tough day so it made me laugh and smile and I appreciate that (I needed that!). Thanks for stopping by and leaving a reply :)
