Taking an Ell

You know that phrase ‘give an inch, and they’ll take an ell?’ Today I left the back door open to let in lots of sunlight and fresh air. A while later, I walked into the kitchen and bounced off an enormous cobweb that somebody built. It started from somewhere outside, stretched through the open doorway, and ended up hitched to the kitchen radiator.

“Excuse me,” I said, glaring at the small yellow interloper.

I don’t know if she’ll take the hint. Spiders usually do.
