…that snakes can climb pipes?
Oh, yes they can. And I’m not just talking about gigantic pythons. Regular old garter snakes. CAN. CLIMB. PIPES.
And I had one in my bathroom on Tuesday, just to prove it.
I despise snakes. I don’t even like looking at pictures of them in books (I turn the page really fast).
So you can imagine my shock and my utter disgust to find one in my bathroom. I knew they were out in the garden – I’d seen two in the past week. But I never expected one in my first floor bathroom.
I almost puked. Seriously.
And after I got off the phone leaving my husband a message telling him I can’t live like this… then I weighed my options and decided killing the thing was way better than allowing it to roam free in my house. So I killed it.
And then yesterday we had a pest-control company out to discuss how to prevent this from happening again. BECAUSE I CAN’T LIVE LIKE THIS.
At first my husband was all like, “well, at least it was a small one.” And I’m like “IT WAS A SNAKE. IN THE HOUSE. I CAN’T LIVE LIKE THIS!”
And after a few days now of having to check rooms before I enter them, he has graciously agreed to pay the aforementioned company ninety-eleven hundred dollars (well, not exactly) for my peace of mind.
