I Ran In Fear
What does a grown woman do when she sees a foot long Brown snake in the garage? First instinct, run in fear. I turned into a 5 year old in the face of a tiny snake. I freaked out, got in the car and waited for my mother in law to take care of it. I made it half way down the driveway and decided I needed to help take care of it. She dropped a rock by it at first and it didn't move. Maybe its dead. Right? She touched it with her broom and it slithered up into a hole by the garage. (I think I may have even screamed at that point.) Yep, its alive. It peeked its head out of the hole on the other side, so I grabbed another broom, and started to sweep it towards the rocks and bushes. It went fairly easily, it was quite tiny. It slithered away not to be seen again (yet). I even freaked out a bit looking up the type of snake and the picture to post. I commented "I'm sure glad thats over" When I look up to find the beginnings of a wasp nest with 6 wasps crawling around on it. I hate wasps more than snakes! Thats it, I'm done. I dealt with a snake and now there are wasps!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm leaving it for my husband to take care of when he gets home. I'm done dealing with creepy creatures today!
