> her attention.  He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating. 
> "Daddy, what are those  two spiders doing?" she asked.
> "They're mating,"  her father  replied.
> "What do you call the  spider on top?" she asked.
> "That's a Daddy  Long-legs," her father answered.
> "So, the other one is a  Mummy Long-legs?" the little girl asked.
> As his heart soared with the  joy of such a cute and innocent question he
> replied  "No dear.  Both of them are Daddy Long-legs
> The little girl, looking a  little puzzled, thought for a moment, then
