...about mama spiders.
the scene: whilst sitting around the dinner table, finishing up a lovely meal of something or other, out of the blue harrison starts up a dialogue.
harrison: mommy, guess what, did you know baby spiders eat their mom?
me: what? really? where did you learn about that?
harrison: we watched a video at school today.
me: tell me more.
harrison: the baby spiders hatch from eggs and they haven't eaten in a long time so they really need to eat to get strong so the mommy spider gives up her life for them.
me: that is a perfect picture of motherhood.
(jeremy spits out his water and laughs.)
(harrison and graham stare at us, completely unaware of the hilarity.)
