Snake Encounter!

Posted by on June 26, 2015

Happy Friday!

This week I braved the crowd at the library for my kids, again. (I’m beginning to think the older I get, the less I want to leave the house. 0.o)

You see, my daughter wanted to pet a snake. Last year, she was so upset that she didn’t get to, so I made a point for her to do it this year. She is my fearless one. I want to be like her when I grow up.

And my son. He was scared of the snakes. Didn’t want to have anything to do with them. He spent much of the time peeking out from behind me. Partly because the snake show was also a comedy routine that included startling the kids with fake snakes. But at the end, he petted a snake and a Taegu lizard. He told me: I faced my fear.

Oh my heart.


And you know what? I’ve held a snake once. It was oddly comforting… 0.o

Have you ever held or touched a snake before?


How was your week?

    I’m one of those strange people who likes snakes. I would never have one for a pet because I think they belong in the wild, but whenever I get an opportunity to touch a snake, I volunteer. Their skin feels really smooth and surprisingly soft. They’re amazing creatures!

      That’s cool. I can’t really say whether I like or dislike snakes. I think it depends on where and how I meet the snake. Ha! The one I held and the ball python made me want to have a snake. Hubby was like: no. Thanks for stopping by!

    What a great experience for you all! I’ve had multiple iguanas and played with my brother’s bearded dragon a lot. Snakes are okay, but they don’t have eyelids, so you don’t get the sarcastic looks that lizards will give you. I love reptiles.

I love hearing from you!
