Snake charmer. I wish I had taken a picture.

Was at church working on sending out lessons. I kept seeing something dangling from one of the ceiling tiles. I just thought some caulking had come loose. (not even realizing they don't call these celing tiles.. Lol) then it started wiggling. Twisting this way and that. I didn't even have to play my flute. (grin) besides - my sister's the flute player. I prefer the clarinet. Lol

So I pointed this little creature out to the other 5 people in the room and chaos ensued. You would think that with me being the youngest there (I am a mere child at the age of 57) that someone would know what to do other than scream "kill it!". Nope. So the oldest one there climbed up on the table - lifted up the tile so the snake would fall down. Then as it started falling he sacked it so it wouldn't fall in him. Now that got everyone's heart rates going - bless their souls.

That's when one of the men picked up a Bible to use to smash this poor thing. What else could I do but put on my super hero vape and save it!

Guess it was about 8 inches long. Probably a baby. How it got in the ceiling tile I will never know but he got to go outside with me.

Now - one little grey snake I can deal with. But am.sure hoping there isn't a nest of them in the attic. That would be even too terrifying for my super hero cape and me.

If I was there the entire church would have smelled of poo because I probably would have crapped myself. Everybody has their thing and I do not do snakes. The hilarious part is I have box turtles and tortoises, parrots all kinds of crazy exotics just not snakes.

I'm glad the snake is okay and you got it outside! There are some of God's creatures that people are afraid of and I get that because I am afraid of a couple. However, I do hate to see animals die.

On a related side note: Why would you use the Bible, of all things, to wack an animal?!

You're a great storyteller! 😄

The snake just wrapped around my fingers as I carried him outside. Lol. He was just getting comfortable as I set him on the grass....

I laughed the whole time I read this!You know what popped into my mind when I read this? The Devil had come to terrify God's people for awhile but ended up being hit with the one thing that tears it down to bite size LOL!!
