Uninvited Dinner Guest

Big Guy announced right after Sunday School that he had a craving for quesadillas.     What an easy lunch request to fulfill.     It didn't take long to get lunch ready and we were all sitting around the dining room table.

It was a typical lunch.    Talking.   Laughing.    Discussing what our plans were for the rest of the day.    Right towards the end of lunch I felt something under my foot.    Something weird.    I pushed my chair back and looked under the table.

"Boys!   What is that?!?!?"

All three boys looked while I back WAY up.

Big Guy reached under the table and grabbed up the snake which had been under my feet and I had just stepped on.   

There had been a snake under my dining room table! 

The guys seem to think that the cat brought it in as a "present".     All I know is that if the cat brings in anymore "presents, the snake won't be the only thing that is dead!

Still shivering....

Have you seen that joke that's supposed to be the cat's diary? How the cat is showing you these kills so that you will be scared. That's what this makes me think of! LOL! And at least it wasn't alive!

This happened to us one time too. Except it was a baby snake and it was alive.

I have NEVER seen my husband turn so pale!
