I had a bit of a scare last night. I opened the back door to let my dog out and something caught my eye.
When the dog woke me up this morning, I was happy to see the snake was gone - or at least out of sight. I'm not exactly excited about going out into the backyard any time soon. Part of me hopes that when the yard guys come next week, they'll mow right over it.
I have no idea what kind of snake it is. It did not have a rattle, so I wasn't as scared as I could have been (read: I did not pee my pants). Hopefully, it's just one of those harmless yard snakes. Right?
Until then, this is the attitude I will take towards that snake and any other I spy in my yard. Note: I chose the edited version of this speech, but know that in real life, I am completely unbleeped.
