My roommate is a self-confessed OCD/phobic cleanliness fanatic. (I don't mind; it is better than the alternative!) But, now that she knows I lived in a tipi, she's convinced I have a secret penchant for bugs, snakes, and all manner of "creepy/crawlies" I don't disabuse her of this opinion. Perhaps she saw me cringe when she mentioned an exterminator aftring seeing seven tiny ant wandering around the cell floor. I thought it best not to tell her about my daughter and me, and how we would carefully and meticulously move the spiders and their babies before cleaning their lacey web curtains from our kitchen windows. Some things are better left unsaid!
