Tim replied, "Lauren, they almost never do, it's been years since I have seen one." I relaxed.
Two weeks later we were sitting under one of the shade trees admiring the work that Tim had done. Suddenly I begin hearing Ping, Ping. When I looked over to where the water bowl was, I noticed bark was falling into it. I slowly looked up and there in the tree was a snake. Now mind you, not a little green snake, a huge snake, what color I could not tell you I didn't stay there that long. I started shouting to Tim as I was running, "I thought you said this hardly ever happens?!!"
But was he listening to me no, he was too busy trying to knock the snake down! When he finally came over to the truck I was crying. "Are you leaving he asked me?"
"No! I can't I said, I need my keys and they are back there on the table."
Tim asked, "I thought you weren't leaving?'
I started crying again, "I'm not I just need to roll up my windows, because I am under another tree!"
Well we were finally settled in several months later when Tim came in one evening stating he heard some hogs. And he was going to have a look, and did I want to come?
"Well do they attack, I asked."
"They almost never do, they are more scared of us. I haven't heard of anyone being attacked in years." Tim replied heading out the door.
"Ok let me get my boots on and I will meet you on the porch!"
As I walked to get my boots, I begin to think....wait the snake, didn't he say that about the snake. I think he said that hardly ever happens, haven't seen in years. I opened the door and told Tim to go on without me I had changed my mind.
As I shut the door and watched him go off without me. I smiled to myself and thought Don't think so, I am so not falling for that again!!!
