I'm drinking a Corona and reading an interview with Ruth Reichl...(she's my fav.)
Julia is piddling through a Spanish dictionary, and, well...translating...something.
She looks up and said, "Oooh, that was a big bug on the porch! Go see what it was...and tell me if it was a scorpion."
After my search, I had no thrills to report. "Nah. Just one of those big spiders..."
"No, one of those big spiders we used to think were scary until we lived here for more than five minutes and realized they aren't worth our time."
Yep. We live in the jungle.
