Because to her that's just what he's like...

Small Thing insisted on showing me the framed tarantula that Initials in the Tree gave her.

"It won't hurt you! It's not alive! And it's behind plastic."

Nevertheless, when she dropped the massive thing in my lap I did recoil in horror.

"He can't bite you," she reminded me. "And I didn't even give him a scary name."

"Oh really? What is it then?"

"Mr Heaven."
