I was innocently putting my girls to bed last night and the doorbell rings. As soon as the door opens I hear my teen boys screech. They will not admit to screeching but I'm telling you, it was a screech. This was on the other side of the door. (Good thing I didn't answer the door, I'd have had a heart attack!)

The neighbor boys were at the door with a snake, that they found IN THEIR YARD, JUST A FEW HOUSES DOWN FROM MINE! At least this was not found in my laundry.

I have had entirely too much nature!

Needless to say, the girls did not get to bed on time.

Just so you know, the neighbor boy holding the snake is a self-proclaimed snake expert and assured me this was not a poisonous snake. It is some kind of constrictor...he thinks. HE THINKS??? He's holding the thing! You think he'd be rather FIRM in his belief that this was a non venomous creature BEFORE he picked it up! Boys!

AAAAAAHHHHHH! I have my feet off the floor right now and could not look directly at that evil, vile thing. I hate snakes!!!! I can never come visit you if things like that live in your neighbourhood!?!?!? Is that a common occurence? I am sure the kids loved it and that is great for them and everything... I try not to pass this phobia on to my kids, but I don't know if I could handle that on my doorstep!

Did you know that snakes make a neat sound when you hit them with your lawn mower? How do I know that? You figure it out. Snake disection anyone?
