I found the snake...

... curled up in a shoe in the back of my closet. Snake and shoe are fine. I only suffered a minor myocardial infarction.

We had a solemn ceremony releasing Snake back into the wild. When I say "wild" I mean the storm drain at the end of my driveway... so it could live with the crocodiles in the sewers, of course. Sigh. Boys.

I hope the Boy has learned that trying to trump Mom's objections with a fait accompli doesn't work.

BTW, maybe it's another part of the Y chromosome I'm missing, but I never wanted a snake. Never! Dog, yes. Snake, no. Didn't even see the point of having a frog. Though turtles were cool.

O dear Baby Jesus!
I'd probably be in ICU right now; you are a trooper, Kat.
Glad to hear you're rid of the "serpent"...tell the Boy to cool it...frogs, snails, ants...that's manageable.
Snakes?
Not acceptable.

Maybe my y chromosome isn't complete but I am so afraid of snakes in person. I will scream like a girl.
:S.

The Boy should have known Walter the Workout Snake. They would have been good friends.

About 20 years ago my Alzheimery, widowed neighbor came over. Said a snake was under her fridge. She visited my wife while I went over to confirm there was no snake under fridge. Excepting the 4-foot blacksnake under her fridge, I was right.

I herded it outside, no worries.

Life in the South, I guess.

Thankfully, I grew up with a sister who loved all forms of wild life, and by "loved", I mean "wanted to house them in our shared bedroom.".

As a mom, I now know how to clean up a muskrat skeleton - prize find to a ten year old boy.
