1. There was a snake in my laundry room.
2. A real. live. snake.
3. That fell from a shelf, right past my shoulder, onto the floor. It slithered. I screamed. Max ran to see why. He said he felt heat near his body. He dropped his Legos. He said we should call Animal Control! I ran upstairs. Told Max to keep an eye on the snake (I did what?) I got my camera. Called Mike.
Are you ready for the picture?
Turn away now if you don’t want to see.
I’m warning you.
It’s scary. It’s huge. And it was IN MY LAUNDRY ROOM.

4. I’ve never been so glad that Mike answered his phone and said he’d come home as soon as he could. He was sorta laughing, sorta calming. His wife was frantic. The snake, of course, slithered under a large carpet scrap in front of the dryer and was nowhere to be seen.
5. Meanwhile, the excitement was building in Max. Daddy was coming home and they were gunna go on a snake hunt!
They got it! And hecks yeah, it was one huge snake!
