I think maybe the winter has taken its toll. We started our Saturday in the usual way: going to a reptile show, searching for a girlfriend for our gecko. Then something happened. I stopped to look at this cool snake just long enough for my wife to say, "do you want a snake?" Within seconds it turned into "let's get a snake," "we should get a snake," and then, before I realized what was happening, I felt like I had won when I was the one who actually got to pick out WHICH snake we were getting.
The winner was Belle (short for Cabelas, another transparent ploy to make this seem like my idea), a Florida king snake, and she's cool. Way cool. So that brings us up to three horses, two dogs, a gecko and a snake. I imagine it's only a matter of time before I have a special aquarium with moving water and a pod of brook trout. Now THAT one really WILL be my idea!
