I was sitting outside on the makeshift patio of a local eatery yesterday when one of the employees peeked around the corner and said, “Don’t freak out, but there’s a snake behind the recycling bin.”
Sure enough, I saw the little guy slithering in my direction. And while I didn’t freak out, I did move to a neutral corner in hopes that he’d pass right by.
Soon, the snake was corralled by braver souls than I and returned to a location with fewer freak-out prone humans.
The little oak snake seemed friendly enough, but I’ve got plenty of friends, thank you very much
