You know how much I love a good snake story. Imagine you’re driving along, and suddenly, there’s a snake’s head sticking out of your AC vent. Well, Patty Everett doesn’t have to imagine that. That’s what happened to her. I love how, when asked if she was scared, she said “Well, somebody crapped in my pants.” That’s one way to put it.
Luckily for her, she just happened to see the head pop out on a stretch of road near a vet’s office, so her brother ran into the vet’s office and got some help. The vet turned up the AC to slow the snake down and then pulled it out with forceps.
What I don’t get is why the snake died. They never explained why, just that it did.
And what I also don’t get is why people always lose one shoe. If shoes are going to be lost, it’s always one of them. People must have thought she was nuts when she jumped out of the car, lost a shoe, and was jumping around holding onto her grandbaby. Nobody would have been able to see the snake. It kind of reminds me of that time a bee flew in the car window and somehow landed under me. Without thinking, I flipped upside-down while still in my seatbelt. Mom thought I was nuts until she saw the bee. I didn’t even know what kind of bug it was. I just didn’t really like the idea of a bug in my shorts.
I wonder how a snake would get in an AC vent anyway.
