A while ago, I was sitting at my computer and in came Muffs carrying something in her mouth. I looked and was horrified to discover it was a snake, although it wasn’t very big…about 8 inches in length and about a quarter inch in diameter. She deposited the darn thing at my feet! Fortunately, the snake didn’t like me anymore than I liked it, and it immediately went underneath the coffee table. Well, now what to do?
I went into the kitchen and looked about. What do I have that could be used to catch a snake? Aha…Salad spoons! So, I got the salad spoons and a Tupperware container and waited for the snake to emerge from underneath the coffee table, which it eventually did. I grabbed it with the salad spoons, plopped it in the container and then threw it outside. Quite satisfied with myself, I sat back down at my computer.
No more than five minutes later, along came Muffs…with another snake! I screamed. She dropped the snake and ran. Where on earth are all these snakes coming from? I can’t imagine the same snake managed to make its way back into the house so quickly. So, again with the salad spoons, although this snake (or the same snake, now wiser) grabbed onto the salad spoons and wouldn’t let go. So, I threw the snake along with the salad spoons outside, lock, stock and barrel. I hope that is the end of snakes. I do declare I’m going to be dreaming about snakes. I HATE snakes. And I now need to buy new salad spoons…
