I know I usually do Wordless Wednesday but today I HAD to add some words. So, this morning hubby is helping this man put storm doors up and they are in the garage with the big (outside) garage door open. He pokes his head in and yells “Hey, honey, your son had a present for you at the back door! I wouldn’t let him bring it in.”
I mean I’m not a HUGE snake fan, but, I feel kind of bad for it. It had to be a bad way to go. You can see his little head is all squished and there’s some blood (yuck) and Poe had dragged him all over creation. Hard to tell how long it took him to finally croak.
I took his picture for this post and then came back inside. He was right outside the kitchen door. A little while later hubby comes back inside and said “Did you know that snake was still alive?” WTF???
Then a few minutes later KeeKee goes over first and he strikes at her so I guess he’s NOT dead unless it’s a reflex action… you know, like when you chop a chicken’s head off and it runs around until it’s blood is all gone? No? You’ve never chopped a chicken’s head off? Dang, you’ve missed out. That’s how we roll up on WM…
Then Poe goes over and checks him out and he strikes at Poe and then FLINGS himself (the snake) backwards against the house. Really weird. I saw him do it. If you look closely at the picture, the middle right hand side, that’s Poe deciding if he wants himself another stab at the snake. So Mr. Snake is doing his “I’m a BA little Mofo so you better not be messing with me” even though he’s all of about 10 inches long.
Poe took one more stab at Mr. Snake and Mr. Snake did NOT like it:
Note that he didn’t get anywhere NEAR Poe but Poe fell out like he’d been shot. I’m still not sure whether he was playing possum or trying to get the snake to scratch his belly!
I went back out a few minutes later and Poe was gone but Mr. Snake was still there. I went back in the house to do something and came back out and Mr. Snake was gone so I guess he lived another day to tell his tale!
