REALLY? Did I want to see a SNAKE?

Sir poked it with his foot and it SLITHERED to the other side of the car. As it SLITHERED, I swear, I felt it on my foot, even though I was far away from it. It gave me the willies.
It then SLITHERED into the grass and went who knows where. I'm sure it's under my bed as I type this.
Oh, and the little feller? Our snake expert tells us it's a Copperhead. Ya know, venomous. VENOM.
I'm going to have to teach Rockett to use the toilet, because she's never going outside again.
