As a kid, I never minded spiders. I always thought they were cool. Not in a Renfield, save them flies sort of way, just in a cool animal sort of way. We didn’t have pets, which also isn’t to say I had pet spiders. Just when I’d come across one, I thought it was kind of cool. Spiders are easy to imagine having personalities. Most insects don’t have personalities. A fly is just annoying. A spider has a purpose and seems to make decisions. Plus they have all those legs and can shoot out a web to save themselves from a fall.
