Not While You Are Living Under My Roof

"So when exactly is the last time you saw Champ?" The husband asked Boy #1.
"Wednesday? Son, today is Monday."
"You haven't told your wife of less than a year that there's a snake loose in the house?"
"Do you think I should? I know I should, but I thought I would have found him by now."
Now that there is a perfect example of why we parents say, 'Not while you are living under my roof, I don't care what you do when you move out.'
While the husband is telling me about this conversation, my feet involuntarily moved up onto my chair and I got the heebie jeebies. Sensing my fear, "You know, snakes have been known to crawl up through the plumbing, right out of the toilet. You be careful when you get up in the middle of the night to go." His Sleep Apnea and Restless Leg Syndrome aren't enough to keep me up at night, he's got to pile it on.
When Boy #1 and Daughter-in-law #1 came over, I took the boy over to the side and asked if Champ came home yet.
"Does the wife know?"
"Can I blog about it?"


If anyone knows how to lure a corn snake out of it's hiding place, by all means please leave info in a comment. The poor kids worried about his snake, oh and there is a minor obstacle, they have two dogs.

papercages - LOL!

Prefers her fantasy life - I hope they take pictures. I'm not going over there until it's found!

Mary Moore and Jonny's Mommy - It's small and would probably look like a chew toy to the dogs, yikes!

Dan Brantley - I had make sure everything was cool before I blogged! But yeah, I couldn't pass this one up!
