Who Parked the Snake In the Garage!

I hate, despise, loathe, detest, abhor and just generally dislike snakes! I don’t discriminate either, I hate them all. Even worms freak me out!

Yesterday morning I thought I would be nice to the little birdies outside and finally refill the bird feeder. I walked into the garage and walked around my car to get to the bird seed and I froze! There it was, a huge green snake! My neighbors could probably hear my shriek of horror inside their homes and they were probably laughing their butts off at the cute little snake dance I performed.

I ran into the house and shouted the words my husband loves to hear SNAKE! He calmly asked ” Where is it?” and I hysterically answered ” In the freakin garage by my car!” He put his sneakers on, grabbed the shovel and killed the blasted thing and then threw it behind the fence.

According to my husband it was a water snake that probably came from the canal that is behind our house. I really don’t care what kind of snake it was, I’m just glad it is a dead snake now! As for the little birdies flying around outside they are not getting fed unless one of the kids feed them!

  1. Hahaha… It is my hubby who is deathly afraid of snakes. I have to move them quickly or he will blast them to bits.

    (yes, I pick them up with my hands and carry them to safety…)

  2. That is just plain disgusting!! I had to hold a boa snake once when I was about 5 or 6 and that pretty much scarred me for life!

  3. We used to have an albino corn snake as a pet. (Don’t ask–I love my husband, but that doesn’t mean he has taste in pets. This is the man who wanted evil chickens, you’ll recall.)

    Glad your hubby was home to help. Mine would’ve picked it up and tossed it out back. 🙂
