>Our Tuesday Night Surprise
So, after I got home from work on Tuesday, I checked on my blog post, commented on blogs I follow and the teasers that were posted, and went to bed. I had the most wicked headache I’ve had in a few months. I was sick at my stomach….and I’ll stop there. Just tmi.
Honey called and said he was on the way home; earlier, I’d sent a text telling him I didn’t feel like cooking and asked if he’d pick something up. Okay?
He calls me. I’m assuming it’s his usual call letting me know he’s on the road. Nope. He asks if I’ve taken anything for my head. I reply that I’d just taken two Excedrin (I usually only take one). He pauses then tells me to not come outside, at all, for any reason whatsoever. Headache spike!!! Why? Our front door, at some point in the past, had a screen/storm door and there is still a cylinder there for it. He told me that, coiled around it, at our front door, is a four or five foot snake.
Okay, I’m creeped out but not afraid. I grew up in the country and I can remember being a very young child, maybe four or five years old….and my uncle asking me to hold a new snake for him while he rustled up a feed sack to put it in. Our family lived all around each other and lots of things were considered common property. The barn, my grandparent’s barn, with all the hay in the loft, also had lots of chickens that roosted there. Rats would come and eat the eggs. My uncle, who had a pet king snake for years, would catch king, black, and green snakes and set them loose in the barn for catching rats. So, I would hold them. No biggie. Just a little creepy….
I sent my nephew a text and he right away responded with the question of its color. If it was brown, he said to kill it. I’d already told Honey if it was black or green, to just scare it off. Well, in the process of scaring it off, he saw its color. Brown. OMG! A freaking poisonous copperhead was hanging from my freaking front door!!!!
