I threw the book at 'im.

I've finally found a practical use for the Tutti i Verbi Greci: crushing spiders.

I was at my carrell yesterday reading the Alcestis when a large spider dropped quickly just in front of my face. Normally I'd leave it be, as spiders do us a great service by eating bugs, but I'd just watched Arachnophobia with my nephew the day before, and this thing looked mean. Luckily a well-timed and perfectly thrown Tutti Fruity (as Dr. K used to say) did the job.

Aside from that the book is largely useless -- at best a crutch and at worst an immense waste of time.
