Fear not! I won’t be putting up any pictures of snakes. Big relief, huh? Me too. I detest those creepy, crawly creatures, but I do have a story to tell.
About a week ago, I went out to run an errand. Actually, I went to grab breakfast.
On my way back, the traffic light stopped me, and the truck in front of me.
While waiting for the light to turn green, in the space of those few minutes, my eyes wandered and caught sight of a cardboard box. It was on the back end of an open trailer thingy hitched to the truck.
And then, I read this inscription on the box: ‘SERPENTIN.’ Yes, it was “Serpentin” without the ‘E’ and not ‘Serpentine.’ As soon as I read it, I got apprehensive. I detest snakes. I know some people like them and actually keep them as pets, but I do not fall into that category. I don’t know what was in the box, but for a moment, I had a “What would you do if you saw a snake” moment. *Shudders*
I remember seeing snakes in secondary school in jars of some liquid to preserve them. But they were dead and even then, they were creepy. I don’t recall ever seeing a live snake in my life. I am not even remotely interested sef.
Have you ever seen a live snake before?
