distraction

I was on the computer in the basement. It was early on a Saturday morning and I was dialed into work for one reason or another. I had a cup of coffee beside me. When Corwin came by, he pointed out that a spider was “swimming” in the coffee.

I said “I’d better not finish it then,” and went back to work.

A few minutes later, Corwin pointed out that I was still sipping from the coffee. “Darn. I’d better pay more attention to that,” and went back to work.

A few more minutes later, Corwin pointed out that I’d finished the coffee and that there was no sign of the spider.

I suppose that it’s possible that the spider climbed out of the cup, vigorously toweled itself off, and went on about its day. I’m having doubts though.
