Hi.

Last night I was filling my dogs water bowl and I saw a fly floating around on top when I scooped him out I saw he was still alive. Not thinking much about it I tossed him in the trash and went to bed.

This morning I was making coffee and toast and guess what there was a fly zooming around in my kitchen. I don't see house flies very often maybe a couple times a year. After a few seconds it landed on the counter and I swear he was staring at me. He just sat there washing his hands or whatever they do and stared at me.

I went into the living room and turned on the news. At the other end of the coffee table there sat a fly. I looked in the kitchen.....no fly. For about ten minutes the fly just kind of hung out with me. Mostly he sat on the table or sofa. He flew around a few times but never got too close so it didn't bother me.

After returning home this afternoon I was straightening up and the whole time this fly is like following me around.

I'm sure most people wonder why I don't just kill the damn thing I've had my chance. I've kind of been wondering the same thing. No reason. I guess that's why I don't kill it.

So that's my story.......

I only kill the flies when they annoy me.


Usually I just leave them alone.

Lighter + Hairspray.

Here little fly.. I shall make you warm..


Edit: Or tie a string to its thorax and hold the other end of the string. You'll have a fly on a leash -- hours of entertainment.

You must live a pretty sad life if you have to resort to catching flies as friends.

So do flies.

OP. I used to have a spider that lived behind a poster on my bedroom wall. It would crawl out whenever I started to play guitar. I thought that was kind of cool.

And no, I didn't kill it because I don't kill anything intentionally.

You know it pooping on you quite a bit when it lands on you. So if that says anything about what you mean to it.

Yeah, me neither. They got the right to live, poor little things. Spiders are almost blind. They sense with their legs.

The Spider and the Fly
Mary Howitt


Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly,
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to shew when you are there."
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."


"I'm sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?" said the Spider to the Fly.
"There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I'll snugly tuck you in!"
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "for I've often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!"


Said the cunning Spider to the Fly, " Dear friend what can I do,
To prove the warm affection I 've always felt for you?
I have within my pantry, good store of all that's nice;
I'm sure you're very welcome -- will you please to take a slice?"
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "kind Sir, that cannot be,
I've heard what's in your pantry, and I do not wish to see!"


"Sweet creature!" said the Spider, "you're witty and you're wise,
How handsome are your gauzy wings, how brilliant are your eyes!
I've a little looking-glass upon my parlour shelf,
If you'll step in one moment, dear, you shall behold yourself."
"I thank you, gentle sir," she said, "for what you 're pleased to say,
And bidding you good morning now, I'll call another day."


The Spider turned him round about, and went into his den,
For well he knew the silly Fly would soon come back again:
So he wove a subtle web, in a little corner sly,
And set his table ready, to dine upon the Fly.
Then he came out to his door again, and merrily did sing,
"Come hither, hither, pretty Fly, with the pearl and silver wing;
Your robes are green and purple -- there's a crest upon your head;
Your eyes are like the diamond bright, but mine are dull as lead!"

Alas, alas! how very soon this silly little Fly,
Hearing his wily, flattering words, came slowly flitting by;
With buzzing wings she hung aloft, then near and nearer drew,
Thinking only of her brilliant eyes, and green and purple hue --
Thinking only of her crested head -- poor foolish thing! At last,
Up jumped the cunning Spider, and fiercely held her fast.
He dragged her up his winding stair, into his dismal den,
Within his little parlour -- but she ne'er came out again!


And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne'er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.

The Spider and the Fly
Mary Howitt


Somebody had to do it.

In fact, I thought the same of you. Glad to see ya again.
I like beetles too, especially the ones which are metal-colored with a big intimidating mouth. You gotta grab them by the side so they don't bite.

Get it? Geeeet it?

No? I'll stop talking now.

It's not my stank.

I shower twice a day.

It's because I saved his life.
