Very important news:
I can't tell if there's a bug flying around my room or if it's just an eye floater.
That's always annoying! If you see the spider again, you know it's there. But if you don't see it, you'll never know if there really was a spider or if it's your mind playing tricks on you!
Thank you for sharing this. It's really cute!
The last bit reminds me of the saying:
"Of course we don't believe in leprechauns. We just know they're there."
There's a particular whistful, dreamlike state humans live in, just between denial and make-believe. We're scientists. We don't believe in magic, but we all know it's there.
