    “Things bite on their return.” Oh, boy, don’t they! The longer we live, the more the calendar fills with many unhappy returns.

    This essay is so powerful. Diane Seuss’s work always makes me want to write.

    Things bite on their return.I witnessed this firsthand at the main post office in Pittsburgh. A spider came out of a sack of letters from Mexico. It ran up the conveyor belt and Bit Budzinski. He was a big strapling guy but he was sick for a week. He comes back and five of us are working the same conveyor belt throwing bundles of letters and small parcels into utility carts. Wouldn’t you know the spider came out of hiding and ran right up to Budzinski again. We caught him (the spider) in a jar and the lab confirmed it was poisonous. by the by, I loved the anniversary disease essay.
