Port-o-potties and the snakes that love them
So, no shit there i was....waiting for a buddy to meet me at Black Bear hole in Lyons and to my dismay, needed to step into the port-o-pottie. Now, I, like many AVOID these teensy, weensy, smelly, contraptions when possible...but sometimes...well, what can I say other than, "duty calls."
So, begrudgingly, I made my way over to the green outhouse and held my breath anticipating the waft of what a friend of refers to as "a bunch of hate." I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the p-o-p but felt compelled to investigate the "cereal level" of the situation...(I'm not explaining that to anyone that doesn't get it.) As I did this, I said to myself, "Funny (as in funny ha ha) that looks just like a coiled up snake...." Then I said to myself, "Oh, shit! That is a coiled up snake!" Unfortunately, I was without my camera and wasn't able to take full advantage of this photo op...but when my friend arrived we took a couple shots with his phone (we made sure to have a firm grip on on the phone while snapping away.) The pics turned out so-so....low quality...it resembles a snake nearly as much as the other "non-snakes" in the toilet. I'll see if I can manage to up load it.
In retrospect....I realized I should have called the p-o-p management to perhaps save the snake, but the thought didn't occur to me at the time and when I went back to Lyons a couple days later my little friend was ...well....if he was in there, he wasn't visible (eewwww!) However, for the record...I DID NOT contribute to the cereal level.....NO WAY, NO HOW!!!!! It was probably nothing more than a garder snake but....he was long... and decided that not only would that be inhumane but perhaps a rude awakening.... on both our ends (pun intended!)
Anyhoo...I guess the moral of the story is..... "look before you leap?"
