Aly loved October, when spiders spun ghostly webs to decorate for Halloween.
Aly knew how to help. That night, she tiptoed outside carrying her mother’s yarn box, full of tangled skeins. She gently gathered sleepy spiders, setting them in the box. Once it was full, she went inside and left it on the kitchen counter.
Aly woke to a ruckus in the kitchen: Daddy whacking at scuttling spiders, Mommy waving a broom.
Interior decorating! Halloween would be a wooly tangle!
