My niece Stephanie has a pond on her property.
She was walking near said pond when she saw a snake tangled up in the kind of netting that goes around onions.
Even though she agrees with all if us that snakes are icky, she picked up the snake and tried to untangle it.
All this while her 3 dogs were jumping up on her and barking for a snake snack.
She got most of the netting off when the ungrateful snake bit her and she dropped it.
It slithered away (ick) into the pond.
I know what you’re thinking.
“She is so proud because her niece saved a snake hence the title of this blog.”
Yes I was impressed and proud of Stephanie.
Because of this I recounted the story to the rest of the family.
A few days later my other niece Julie sent Steph a text:
“Oh Steph, I sent you a present, did you get it ? It was wrapped in a fruit bag by your pond.”
So I wrote to Steph
“Julie’s text made me laugh and laugh”
And Steph wrote back:
“I know. And when I read only the first sentence I got so excited that she got me a present I couldn’t figure out how she deposited in my pond. Hysterical”
I know it’s a small thing but for some reason That snake story has really hit me as perfect.
I wake up in the middle of the night and start laughing at even the idea of sending someone a snake as a gift.
I’m so lucky and now so are you because….Zen
