“Mary, what are you trying to catch?”
“Those things!” Mary said, “they have 2 legs and make tons of noise.”
“A human?!” Mary’s husband said. “Are you nuts? They’ll kill us both!”
“No, This’ll work. And then we’ll eat like kings!”
“Mary! When you moved us inside, I thought it was to get out of the cold! Not this! We’re going to be killed, you stupid woman!”
“Here comes one now!” Mary said.
“And he has a shoe! Mary, run!”
Mary’s husband ran up the light and across the ceiling, looking back to see his wife gently placed on the shoe and walked to the outside door.
Once outside, they regrouped. “That was too close, Mary! No more bright ideas, alright?”
“Ok. But hear me out. What about a web across the interstate bridge?”
