I play the guitar a little bit.
I drink a little bit.
Sometimes I drink a little bit before I play the guitar.
Sometimes people tell me I sound better on the guitar after I've drank a little bit.
I'm pretty sure I don't sound any better but somehow when I play, I make the people who listening to me want to drink.
The more I play, the more they drink.
The more they drink, the better I sound.
So I drink even more so I can sound even better so they can drink more because I sound better which makes me want to drink more so I can sound better which will make them drink more which will make me drink more so that.......
Ya know, the usual.
I've often wished that I could drink while I was playing the guitar not just before or after. I've wondered if that would actually make my guitar playing sound even better to the folks who were listening because unlike me when I play, they are actually drinking whlle they are listening whereas I am playing under the disadvantage of not drinking at the same instant that I am playing which puts me a little out of synch with the drunks who are listening.
I wish I had a couple of extra hands coming out of my mouth.
If I did, I could pour the beer down my throat while at the same time playing the guitar with my other two hands.
Spiders have two little hands coming out of their mouths.
Those two little hands are called palps. Spiders use those pulps to hold on to whatever they are going to sink their fangs into. Sometimes they use the palps to make changes in the thread of their webs. They grasp the thread with their palps and amend the web with thier mouths.
Spiders don't play the guitar unless of course, they happen to be Spiders from Mars.
The moths are in the web.
I've got a cold beer in my hands.
I'm sipping the beer and wondering what the spider's gonna do.
Let's remember, the moth nearest the spider was the moth who ate the poisoned peas.
I figured that the spider would go to the nearest meal. The spider would nibble on the pregnant moth with the poisoned peas. The spider would realize that something was wrong. The spider would choose one of her escape routes. She would return to her corner.
She would feel weak. She would ascertain from the vibes coming through the silk that the meal furthest away was too strong for her to overwhelm. She would wait until her queasiness subsided. Then she would return to the near meal and nibble a little bit more.
I knew something that she couldn't possibly know. The meal she was nibbling on was poisonous. Every nibble would make her weaker.
I didn't know who would die first, the poisoned spider or the moths struggling in the web.I wondered if it was the silk that killed the moth or was it the spider. If the spider died first, I would free the moths from the web.
I figured the whole deal might take a day after the first taste. This is what I thought the spider might do.
I waited to find out what the spider would actually do.
