Husband: Don’t go outside, there’s a big copperhead on the porch.
Me: I’ve got a big stick.
Him: No wonder the house is such a mess.
Him: That’s a broom.
So there was this giant snake on our porch, and by giant I mean a normal-sized snake, but it was venomous and it crept right up behind the husband. We are a little freaked out, especially since we don’t know where it is now.
Then this morning some shit happened and I ended up having to walk down the dirt road to get home, about a mile or so, and somehow I ended up with a pen in my hand. No idea.
But I was a
little lot nervous about the snake and of course bears and coyotes and stuff so I was glad I had the pen. Because I’d just write them a polite note and ask them not to kill me, please. Or give them an autograph right in the eyeball. I don’t know. But it made me feel a bit better.
Now I’m home safe and sound and I’ve got the doors locked so the snake can’t get in. Because we all know how well that works.
