About 0600 this morning the sound of the shower made me sit my coffee aside and walk back to our bedroom. As I walked inside to say good morning to Sweet Wife I glanced over towards our bed. Its big, high; a child has little problem crawling beneath.
I noticed something odd on the floor next to the bed. I did a double take. A snake. A live snake with its head raised with its tiny red tongue at full flicker.
Sweet Wife opened the bathroom door. I said, "Hey, check it out." Then pointed towards our unusual visitor.
Scream....then, more screams. Then, she levitated, and screamed. In one step and bounce she was on top of the bed. Best flat-footed jump I've seen since high school.
Snakes will do that to a person....
She threw a pillow at me.
She said, "Flush it."
I did as requested.
