“That thing is not going in my closet.” It was the last thing I ever heard her say.
We’d been talking about moving in together for months. She knew about my collection. Sure, she’d never seen it… she hadn’t wanted to. I tried to explain to her how big it was and how freakin’ awe-inspiring it was. I guess she didn’t believe me. In retrospect, I do remember her just nodding and smiling as though she was humouring me.
I think it was the boa that took offense to her screaming first. Or maybe it was the cobra. Oh well.

That sounds sinister and yet humourous. It left me wondering if there’s a body…
“That’s serendip! Just 100 — or did the Burmese (as opposed to species Monty) Python eat words 101 to 105?”, she laughed.
“Great story. I think I’ll check others’ closets with one of those snake wrangling wands from now on.”
What was the that?
A snake collection. 🙂
Urrgh! I can’t stand snakes.
I love ’em. 🙂 As long as they’re not biting me… 😛
You are brave.
