    yes... the man has no fear of other creatures, just bugs

    somehow, he's fine with camping though it's so strange to have to continually save a man from small little insects and such!

    Mine doesn't make me save him, but the few times I took him fishing, I had to bait his hook. I don't take him fishing anymore. Not that he really wanted to go in the first place. *sigh*
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    large men who fear baiting their hooks are kind of funny... I'm usually bait slave when fishing... and the one to touch the fish as well

    you're lucky there... he always WANTS to go fishing

    It depends on my mood at the time I think.
    Squish, put it outside or trap it.

    I don't feel as bad when I occasionally flush the bug down the toilet. Even if there is a crap in it. Its as if God wants this bug to live it will survive. Almost completely feel absolved from responsibility when I flush a bug.

    I like spiders and its supposed to be bad luck to kill spiders so I give them special priority accommodations and throw them out the door nestled in tissue paper.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    What if it's not a spider but a rhino? Do you squish a rhino, or shoo it gently out the door?

    I guess that is a bit like the old rule for where you let gorillas sit... Anywhere they damn well please.

    I really think Ti was at fault here. "Well, she didn't SAY it couldn't be a rhino..."
