“Now that’s an ominous sign,” I told Bill as we stepped out the front door. It was 6:40 am and a full moon hovered just above the tree line.
After he pulled away, I went back in the house and headed into the kitchen for a cup of coffee. I stopped dead in front of the refrigerator. Up on top, a snake perched, looking down at me.
I blinked. Do we have any plastic toy snakes, I pondered. Is it a prank of some kind? Am I seeing things?
I immediately called Bill. “You have to come home! There’s a snake on top of the fridge!”
Had he been even 2 more minutes down the road, I would not have called him. But lucky me.
We tried to get a picture, but the resident 2 year old had exhausted my camera battery. And the zoom lens doesn’t reach from the other side of the kitchen.
I do not know how the thing got up there. I’m not sure I want to know.
Bill came home, captured the snake, and took it outside. What a guy.
What a day…and it’s only just beginning.
