There’s a Snake in My Couch Part I : A Mom’s Point of View

By Marie Stephens Not everyone knows this about me, but I am a snake phobe. I don’t like to visit them at the zoo.  I don’t even like to touch pictures of snakes in books.  I can’t even handle those fake plastic snakes.  I am not much of a yeller, but the few times that I have yelled at my kids were because they put a rubber snake under my pillow, or nearly caused me to jump out of my skin when they threw one on my bed while I was sound asleep.  I do not like the way they move, I do not like their creepy hissy looking tongues; I am fully aware of the fact that a snake’s skin is not slimy, but It still appears that way to me and it still freaks me out!

There’s a Snake in My Couch! True Story

Yes, you read it correctly.  I will be working on this week’s challenge by telling the story of :  The Snake in the Couch.  This is a true story that took place in 2005 in our house nestled in the rolling hills of Mount Ayr, Iowa.  First, I will be telling the story from my point of view….as I was the first discoverer of said snake.  Secondly, with the help of my beloved husband, Tim, we will be telling the story from the snake’s point of view.  If time allows, maybe I can talk Tim into telling the story from his point of view…..and then even from Harrison’s point of view…although he was only a few months old at the time! So stay tuned to watch the story unfold.  It’s a good one.
