The Spider and the Bee

(Written By: Sandra Herren)

What Is The Answer?

Today I saw a granddaddy long legs and a bee on the patio. They were all cuddled up together. Both DEAD! So naturally I wondered who killed who first?

Did the bee sting the spider and die because the spider was poisonous, or did the spider die because the bee stung it?

They were piled up together so I couldn’t tell who was supposed to be on top. If it was a fight, there was no obvious winner and no help there in solving the riddle.

Maybe it was a suicide pact. Does the insect world have such a thing as a suicide pact?

Were they very good friends or were they just two insects passing and re-passing as people do? It seemed unusual to find the two of them dead all cuddled up with each other.

Maybe they were good friends and since they were different species, their families and friends did not approve and gave them so much grief they couldn’t bear life any longer and ended it together. We probably will never know.

Anyway, I gave them a good sweep with the broom and now will forget them. Amen.
