Daughter brought home a dead snake (!!!!). After much cajoling and “Stay away from me!” responses, I got tired of fighting it and gave in to touching the snake. Then I decided to face my fear and hold the damn snake. Oh, it was missing its head. It appears someone cut it off. Ugh.
My husband used to catch live snakes. If he had been here (he was back at the RV), he would’ve held it. He said he would’ve held a live snake, too. Good for him, because HELL NO to a live snake. Yes, I held a boa constrictor once when I was in 9th grade at a pet store in Security, Colorado. But NO way I’d do it now. Not my thing.
Tomorrow she will give it a proper burial.
I’m sitting here, ready to drink a beer and shivering. I can’t believe I did that. Yes, I have a pic to prove it. *shiver* Yes, I washed my hands—thoroughly.
Man…I can’t believe I did that. And might I add that I don’t ever want to do that again.
