Coffee Log, Day 26


Coffee: Guatemalan Extra Dark Roast, Trader Joe’s Brand

I’ve been opening my bedroom windows when the weather’s nice. Unfortunately, a tiny brown spider has taken residence in one of them. She’s living between the pane and the bug-net. I’m not sure how she got in or how to get her out.

I’m scared of spiders. I don’t know when that started. My mom tells a story of me at three crawling under the kitchen table, picking up a big black spider and eating it whole. Maybe its ghost haunts me. I get dreams once a month that my bed is filled with spiders. How many kids did I orphan when I ate her?
