SNAKE APOCALYPSE AND A CONTEST!!! What’s not to love?

What am I supposed to be doing? Packing. What am I actually doing? You’re lookin’ at it. I can’t help it! I have so much shit to tell you again, and I can’t possibly leave the state before writing this post! Let’s begin, shall we? *clears throat*

Last Thursday, this happened in the downstairs bathroom:

snake baby photo: baby rat snake P5010020.jpg

This is not “the” snake. I would never have a rifle in my bathroom. Probably.

A baby rat snake. Not too alarming. Snakes happen, and this one was a tiny baby. I scooped it into a box (while it continually struck at it) and let it go safely into the garden. And then, five hours later, it happened AGAIN in my kitchen. Could it be the same baby snake? If so, howthefuck did it figure out how to get back into my house? Why did it want in there so bad? OR. What if it’s not the same one? What if there’s a mom rat snake in my walls or cabinetry having babies?

We would have to sell the house.

The following day, I’m pruning in the garden on the side of the house, when I find this:
snake

Ya’ll. I peed a little.

Approximately four milliseconds later, I realize it’s my son’s rubber snake. Soon thereafter,  a two-day-prank-fest ensued. There was a lot of screaming.

 

Only 24 hours after the SNAKE APOCALYPSE, this showed up in our backyard:

 

husky

The most beautiful, sweet, cuddly, well-behaved husky pup I’ve ever seen. She was about a year old probably, and unfortunately (for my neutered dog who was treated like a cheap whore on nickel night) in heat. We had her for about 18 hours before we located her *owners (who live on my friggin’ block!). In that 18 hours, we fell in love. Not just admiration. LOVE. Like, my kids cried when she was picked up. Like, I think about her everyday. Like, I searched Husky Rescue sights for 2 hours the next morning, hoping to find one just like her to adopt. Like, I walk my dog by her house and try to telepathically communicate to her, willing her to escape again and come “home”.

I mean, we’re not lunatics. It’s not like we named her or anything. HAHAHAHA *cough-River-cough*

*I have a rant public service announcement. NEUTER/SPAY YOUR PETS (I happen to know the owner is not planning to breed her). And for the love of all things holy, if you have any pet, much less a breed notorious for escaping, put a f#cking tag on its collar!!! Oh, and they have this brilliant thing now called microchips! DUH.

End Rant. *adjusts monocle*   (<<Maria from Behold The Infinite gave me exclusive rights to use that)

Random thoughts for no reason whatsoever:

1. F#CK OFF, chin hair! Leave me alone already!
2. I always spell acquaintance wrong and spellcheck has to yell at me. ALWAYS. (yes, even this time)
3. I guess I only had two random thoughts.

I mentioned at the start of this post that I’m supposed to be packing, which brings me to this:

I’M GOING ON A TRIP!

Where, you ask? Oh, only my favorite place in the whole-wide-world.

grand teton national park photo: Grand Teton National Park Day7_42_zps18a555ac.jpg

Grand Teton National Park

You know what? I’m dying to share my excitement with you, and the only way I know how is to….

HAVE A CONTEST!!

The rules are as follows: In comments, make your best prediction of what awkward/embarrassing thing will undoubtedly occur on the trip. The predictions can be as mundane or outlandish as you wish. I will ship a special item purchased during my trip to the winner! And yes, it’s possible to have more than one winner.

Examples from my impressive track record include, but aren’t limited to: pee my pants, walk into glass doors, fall out of canoes/kayaks/rafts, get completely lost, have my drink exit my nose, and fall flat on my ass in public. Also, once I did something too humiliating to say here. But it starts with an SH and rhymes with bart.

The possibilities are endless, really, so play along and make a guess. It’ll be fun! And if you’re on Instagram, keep an eye out for real-time photos!

Have you ever had a snake in your house? Does it drive you bat-shit when people aren’t responsible pet owners? What embarrassing thing do you just know I’m gonna do?

  3. Four snakes in my house. Four. All found already dead, but they got IN there alive. Each about the size of a pencil. Black. Potential to be GIFUCKINGNORMOUS. Find a live one? I’ll be signing papers on a lease somewhere with lots of concrete before I’ve finished screaming.

    I’m going to predict peeing, but not the little piddle in your pants that feels clammy and gross but doesn’t show to the public; I’m talking full blown, run down your leg pee your pants. Not that I’m wishing that on you, but a contest’s a contest.

    What will you do that is embarrassing?

    Okay, this is specific, but it COULD happen.

    There will be a couple having their wedding photos taken and they will get photo-bombed by Bill Murray because apparently, that is his job now. You will be walking by and notice Bill Murray and yell, HOLY SHIT, IT’S BILL MURRAY causing the whole wedding party to look at you and the perfect picture will be ruined. Not only that, it really isn’t Bill Murray, it’s the brides uncle who only looks like Bill Murray but he hates that he looks like Bill Murray because of an unfortunate ground hog experience. This will be the straw that breaks the uncle’s back and he will become so enraged that his heart explodes and he dies. Sooo…you will ruin wedding photos and accidently kill Bill Murray’s doppleganger.

    Or you might walk into a door.

  7. Nope never had a snake pop in for a visit. Although if they did they would come by the hundreds. You see they a) know I use to chop them in half with an axe (got a whole 50 cents each time from my dad up until the age of 10 or so) and b) know I can’t abide the sight of them now. Wouldn’t even advance towards them for $500.00 today thank you very much.
    Did have a dog pop in though. Cutest little Maltese ever. Brought him inside as he was whining and obviously lost. We spoiled him rotten for a few hours and vowed to find the owner in the morning. Long story short – in the middle of the night I heard a plaintive whistle and the faintest “So-phie! So-phie!” So did “Malty”. She shot up and raced for the window barking out a welcoming reply. Christ. I go to the window and there’s this couple in their night clothes – seriously – staring back at me. They thought I’d surely dognapped their Soph. Lovely. I whip open the window to reassure them and pull so hard I snap off the lock. “Give us back our dog.” was the gracious response. Am still waiting by the lockless window for a thank you…

    As for the lovely contest concept: I’ll wager you’ll fall out of the tree you scampered up due to a reunion with your downstairs bathroom visitor. Clinging to a limb you spy a sudden movement off in the distance. Why it’s not River is it? It is! She’s come to renew her acquaintance with your pup! Excited, you lean forward, she leans up, takes a hold of the hair dangling from your chin and tugs …

  9. Bethie, I’m allowed to catch and relocate snakes and I have an 8′ python in an enclosure beneath my bar top named Hiram, so, a word on baby snakes for future reference. The smaller they are the less venom they can produce, therefore what venom they do have is exponentially more potent…so don’t get bit by wee ones either okay?

    That’s enough of that, onto the contest winning predictions. Hmm…you’re plucking chin hair while sitting on the dunny after a huge night out (where you fell on your butt after your drink exited your nose) and suddenly see a giant snake enter under the bathroom door whereby you run screaming through a glass door into the path of an oncoming bear and immediately fall out of your canoe…then you wake up…on the floor next to the bed and realise it was all just a bad dream…until you notice a snake under the bed at which you jump up and…(to be continued).

    1. Normally, I’d comment first on your prediction (cuz it’s freakin’ hilarious), but I gotta know more about your snake. I grew up with an uncle with a 6′ Boa named Lylith, and I’ve always had a healthy respect for snakes because of that. So how long have you had Hiram? (cool name, btw!) How old is he/she? Is she friendly?

      1. Oh you’d love him then, and the stupid phone did that, it’s Hitam, with a “t” and is Malaysian for “black”. I inherited him about 6 or so years ago (he was already about 4 or 5) from someone moving interstate and taking him would’ve meant big trouble if she was caught. He is a Black Headed Python and is native to these parts. I built my bar for him which has a glass front with the enclosure filled with sorts of old memorabilia. Sometimes people will be checking out the old stuff in there and then see something move and get right up close to check it out and just about do a backward somersault when they realise…it’s never not funny. He makes for a great party trick and has cured heaps of people of their irrational phobias of snakes. But he’s no pet now, he was initially and would’ve died if he’d ever escaped, I swear he was cross-eyed, bloody useless aim, but now he could fend for himself. That’s not to say he’s not okay to handle but he only lasts so long and then wants to go home. He’s only ever bitten one young girl on the shoulder because thatscwhere my daughter’s rat had been sitting earlier…one smell and he was all “gimme some o’ that!”

  10. First of all, about the chin hair, why the hell are my stray eye lashes growing on my chin?

    Secondly, about your contest, you beat me to it. This is what always happens to me on a road trip, so let’s assume you’re going on a road trip: As a female, you know that peeing beside car is a complicated act involving deeply squatting and keeping your feet as far apart as possible while standing behind a car door hardly large enough to hide. Now, you think no one can see you, when clearly everyone on the road does. To make things worse, your pee does not behave. Shoes and clothes get wet, and the wind blows pee back onto and even into the car, which makes for a very uncomfortable ride. Not exactly creative, though, as I’m sure we’ve all experienced this scenario. Right?

    1. But what if I had a shenis? Would that help me pee on the side of the road with better efficiency, and less wet shoes? Hmmmmm. I guess I’ll have to try that.

He likes to say hi to his squirrel, jack rabbit and lizard friends, otherwise I would never go that way!! I even wrote a post last year about a HUGE rattler (no embellishment) who took a strike at my kid. It was cooling off under a rock…I heard a weird noise that was reaching deep into my data base that is my small brain from my medic and search & rescue days, “that is a sound I should know..” Then LUNGE…the eff’er (one of these days I will actually cuss online…promise) lunged after Phoenix who had gone to sniff and investigate. Beth, as the post says, it was fight or flight adrenalin. I’m not all that strong. But, I literally pulled up and back so hard on the leash that it yanked Phoenix all of the way off his four paws to 3 feet away from the snake. It was the worst moment ever that I did that to him but it easily saved his life. That was one pissed off rattler. No, somehow I didn’t hurt him. But, I admonished him to no end for the danger. Then I took a picture of…IT. It’s on the post. Ironically the worst ones are the baby rattlers because they haven’t learned how to control their venom release yet. They will kill instantly.

We don’t have a fence, and couldn’t keep him anyway, but I was so sad when he left. I later found out that a neighbor had picked him up on the road, after seeing an SUV dump him out and speed away (there is a special place in hell for those people) and he was Houdini and escaped from their fenced yard. They found a forever home for him with some humans with acreage, so I am sure he is living a happy puppy life…

  33. Are you kidding? A SNAKE in your HOUSE? I would have to leave the planet. Or at least sleep in the car for the rest of my life, which I actually did the one time I have ever seen a snake in my life during a camping trip near San Francisco. The boyfriend insisted on sleeping in the car with me rather than the comfy tent and I yelled at him for patronising me, and coincidentally, we broke up a couple of weeks later. Anyway.

    Have a lovely trip! I’m going to say… you get something stuck up your nose.

  34. Would love to hear how you liked the Grand Tetons. I went to a dude ranch there when I was 12 and had one of the best times of my life!

  35. I recently found a spider in my basement and I was petrified for a moment. I actually blogged about it. I can’t even imagine finding a snake. I’d probably move.
    Love your humor! Funny ladies fo’ life!
