Age
Every morning, a spider makes a small web, at head height, between the lemon tree and the patio, and every morning I walk into it and get a facefull of web.
By the next morning the spider has forgotten that all his effort had been for naught and builds another one, and I have forgotten that the web will be there for sure and walk into it again.
In short, as I have aged, my memory has degenerated to that of a spider.

Maybe the spider isn't all that young either :right:

I'm not sure whether that cheers me up or not,

Eh, it could be worse. I had a steady run in with the light fixture outside of my house. Consequences of being in a hurry mostly. At least the web isn't visible at every angle.

Peehaps the spider's memory is just fine.

It's trying to catch you tt.

You might be onto something.
This is the guy that lives under the house. Maybe he has some kind of arrangement with the little spider to do all the work for a share of the kill, my liver for example.

Those "web-designers" are female. Maybe she likes you and is trying to mate with you?:)

Yeap, sex seems to be the objective, the spider's trying to court tt92. She's clearly a tarantula so tt92 will be eaten after mating.
I wonder what a spider-parrot would be... a spiders that talks, a parrot that crawls with eight little legs...

Age's good for Port and other selected wines.
A matter of attitude.

If I had a lemon tree on my patio, I'd be happy to accept a little web in the face, even one spun while under the influence of benzedrine.
