I’m not a violent guy. In fact, I abhor pain. Pain that would accompany a strong punch to the face or midsection. Maybe that’s why I watch hockey but don’t play hockey. But, when I see a Brown Recluse spider on my bathroom counter I conjure up all the rage that I can carry within in this sorta-hippie, peace-loving body of mine and squish that little sucker with such vengence I worry that I will crack the countertop and wake up my beautiful wife.
