Wendy over at “Fire on the Poop Deck” had a situation with a snake, a very large and fearsome snake, in her back yard. I have to commend you dear Wendy for your bravery in the face of adversity, as for me, I would have cowered in the corner and then been terrified to go back in the yard thinking that this snake would have most likely NOT traveled alone. In my over active mind, this is a family snake that is always accompanied by his snakey wife and 7 of their 8 snakey children and for good measure and because they are family oriented grandma and grandpa snake are along for the slither too, both sets, paternal and maternal. That’s a shitload and a half of snakes. This lovely snake family watch hidden and in horror as the police and the snake wranglers of Tampa Florida show up at Wendy’s house and dragged snakey-poo by the whatever they grab him by and take him off to the snake pokey. Yeah I got it all figured out….WATCH out Wendy, I know there are more where that one came from, they are hiding in the yard…still!
I would go nuts, never go in the back yard again, immediately put the house up for sale and sell everything I own so I wouldn’t have to go back “there” again. CRIPES, I know it’s illogical, so is thinking that the eagles that fly overhead on a daily basis will spy my 4 pound cat and think of it as a tasty treat and swoop down on her only to find that she is just fur, bones and attitude. I also know it’s illogical that one of my very best friends is TERRIFIED of cats….how weird is that? What’s even more weird…it’s kind of therapeutic to write the word snake over and over again….makes them not so real!
