Not really an asp. I'm not in Egypt. Just an Indiana Jones reference.
But this post is about snakes.
I went on a walk today along Naperville's Riverwalk. Along one stretch, I suddenly stopped and I really don't know why, but I did. And I'm glad I did. Four feet in front of me was this...
It reared up and looked right back at me. I backed away and it laid back down and went about its business.
This particular stretch of the Riverwalk did not allow me a route to pass the snake without climbing up into a five-feet-above-ground garden or walk in the middle of a busy street.
So I turned around and went back.
When I got home, Nathan showed me a new toy that my MiL got him...
Oh coincidence, you are a bitch.
