We have a snake. In the yard. That slithers. Through. The GRASS.
Unacceptable. And terrifying. Let me explain how bad this is...
Okay, so Bink and Bubba and I are playing in the yard. I am generally a barefoot girl and Bink is, too so we never wear shoes when we go outside (I know, that is how parasites attack your feet and get into your bloodstream and ultimately cause your demise BUT I have heard that parasites are an awesome weight loss technique so I'm willing to risk it)...
(Cue the Jaws music)
And we are running around, being princesses (obviously, what else would we be doing? Our taxes?) and I happen to glance down...
(da DA da DA da DA)
AND THERE IS A GIANT BLACK SNAKE SLITHERING THROUGH THE GRASS TWO INCHES FROM BINK'S FEET! AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, MINE!!
I tell her to run for her life! She tells me I am a goosehead! I pull her out of harms way, run her up the stairs and dramatically into the house. She doesn't thank me for this, rather, she tells me that she wants to stay outside because the snake is nice, and there is nothing to be scared of.
Nothing to be scared of??? This is a legit picture of a random snake I found that is not one third as scary as the snake in our yard:
(Okay, I found MANY pictures of snakes that were really, really scary and scared me too much to post. So here's one that isn't so bad)
If only our snake was this sassy.
