of sticky forbidden fruits.
Tiger trapped in web.
Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practise to deceive!
Ah, Sir Walter Scott of required-reading Ivanhoe fame. When I saw the prompt for One Single Impression this week, my first thoughts turned to your oft-repeated and misattributed quote. Perhaps that's because I have a true fear and loathing of spiders? Never mind that. It was a simple jump from that saying to imagining Tiger spinning in such a web of deceit. And thus, and so, another 'ku meeting the "nature" test, albeit, the "human nature" test, is born.
