I had just picked up Soren from school today when I almost lost my life. There is a wonderful teacher at their school named Mrs. Clark. A little crazy, but wonderful. Any person with a snake as a pet is CRAZY! She gave the kids in Soren's class some of the snake's shed skin. As I was pulling out of the pick lane Soren announces to me that he has some snake skin from Mrs. Clark's snake to show me. Before I realized what I had done, I had opened my door to jump out of to get away from the snake skin. Hello, I was driving! It's a miracle that I didn't hit anyone. I threatened Soren's little life that he better not take the skin out of his backpack. Then he told me he was going to put it under my pillow tonight. That stinkin' little booger. I don't think anyone realizes the extent of my fear of snakes.
