Playful Temptation

When asked, I’m the neighbor that will feed the cat, water the plants, and take in the mail. It is ironic to witness an incredibly hypnotic spider web in the home of an arachnophobic. Two years ago I brushed a spider off of Annette’s back porch, and humbly rewarded with a plate of fresh baked cookies.

What fun it would be to send Annette a photo of her kitchen. Temptation is at play. What Would Jesus Do? (WWJD) Love thy neighbor comes to mind. Sorry spider, you need to find a new home. Today I choose lame store bought cookies.

    1. Thanks Rochelle. This may not be the right place to ask. But I have been trying to comment on several Friday Fictioneers posts, and I find “Blogger Reply” I don’t like adding passwords to send. How should I reply when I find a “Blogger Reply?” What do you suggest?


      1. I’m not sure how to answer that one. Blogspot blogs are kind of challenging for WordPress bloggers I think. Since I started on Blogspot I have a password already. Kind of a tough call. At any rate I’m glad you’re making the effort. Some great friendships have been forged through this challenge. I’m not sure that helps. Sorry.




  1. I guess I’m a little mean, or a prankster. I had a co-worker who confessed to being terrified of spiders. Someone brought some plastic spiders to work the week of Halloween. I stuck one on the stick-shift of my co-worker’s car with double-sided tape. She didn’t notice it until she reached down to put the car in gear. It’s a wonder she didn’t hurt herself trying to escape the vehicle. Needless to say, no cookies for me.
