Ok. Y'all! I have another snake story. I know! I know! You are tired of reading about snakes. They are creepy and there are other things you would rather read about. But here's the thing. It is Central NC and the reality is--there are snakes. Get over it. You just have to be on the lookout and you're good. Doug, our designer and Squishy's dad (Squishy pictured here...OMG...how adorable is he?!?!), left one afternoon and came running back in.
He said something like, "There is a HUGE copperhead outside!! I almost stepped on it! I could have died! If I hadn't been juggling my Tupperware and my sister hadn't called me at that moment and made me look down at my phone, I wouldn't have seen it. That's a $30k bite! We gotta do something about it."
I'm like, "Shotgun?"
Let me break this down for you:
1. I love a man willing to take care of his Tupperware and take it home to be cleaned.
2. I love a man willing to take his sister's call at any moment. That's just real love.
3. I can appreciate the fiscally responsible and immediate concern of how a snake bite or any accident can impact the bottom line.
4. His reaction let me know this was a big deal.
We all walk outside, grabbing shovels and such. I'm ready to film because you know we can't do anything of excitement without catching it on film. I mean, we could be a
show sensation. We hunt down the worm ... I mean snake. No, I mean worm. It was like 12" long.
I was like:
His response: "A snake bite is a snake bite."
And there you have it. Come buy some plants. Watch where you walk wherever you go. Wash your Tupperware. Peace out.
