My boys love watching the discovery channel. They love learning about animals. Last night we watched a few minutes about bears in Russia. So this morning they were excited to turn it on and see it was about snakes and how deadly they can be when they attack. First of all, GROSS! I HATE snakes with a passion! Second, they had it on while they were eating breakfast before school. How can you eat and watch something like that?! I was getting sick just listening to it as I made their lunches.
On the show they started talking about some kind of a Viper snake. It was huge! And it had diamond patterns on it's back in bright green and yellow. Hunter comes running into Cody and asks, "Did you see that snake? It's beautiful!" I looked at him like he was crazy. He said, "What?! It's cute!" Oh my gosh! Even Cody said no to that and Cody is into that stuff. But a few minutes later I hear Hunter say, "That's freaky outy." That was a little better to hear then how this snake is 'cute'. Cody and Hunter started talking about getting a snake but believe me I put a stop to that one. I'd never sleep again knowing one was in the house. It was bad enough when I found a Gardner Snake downstairs one morning as I was going to put wash in. Somehow it came up through a drain pipe. Luckily Jared was home so he could get rid of it. But only after he tried shoving that thing in my face. I hate snakes with a passion. Those creepy, slithery, hissing things give me the shivers.
