This afternoon, I became that little girl in the Schoolhouse Rock “Interjection” video (see the 1:25 mark above) when I came face to face with a fricking snake in my backyard!!!! I swear to you, I shrieked “Eeeek!” when I almost stepped on it! It was right next to a stack of bricks against the wall of the shed…and it quickly slithered behind the bricks. I’m pretty sure it’s probably living in my shed now, so basically I’ll be getting no yard work done for the rest of the summer because I will NOT be going in there to get any tools.
My friends asked me how big the snake was, and my simple reply was, “Ever seen the movie Anaconda?”
