When I wake up in the night and then hear something in my house, it is not like most people where it could be the cat or dog. I assume it is a sloppy gecko pushing something around. Then, as I come a bit further awake, I have to wonder if the noise was a snake, a python, or even worse a cobra maybe eating a gecko. Well, now I can't get back to sleep and seeing as I could do a a bathroom visit if I tried, I get up and look around and find nothing. I will be watching for snakes all day today.

Ah, yes.  What an entertaining part of the world to live in.  Maybe just a banded krait looking for a snack.  Nothing to see here, move along...

Oh, I've been in that neck of the woods once or twice.  Everything creeps, crawls, slithers, slinks, most of it is nasty, everything smells like...jungle, which has it's own smell, and there's a valid technical reason why I never went back.  Apart from not handling heat well anymore; cold I can still do fine, but heat gets to me quickly.  That's why I live in a high desert  Tongue

Oh, pshaw.  When I was there they had BIG dangerous snakes, not little 4 meter babies like that one!  Heck, we used cobras as alarm clocks; bite me at 5:30, if I smack you on the head bite me again at 5:40.  Gosh, those were the days...big dangerous snakes were really BIG and dangerous.  Men were manly, women were womanly...

Wacko

I did mention the valid technical reasons why I haven't been back any time in the last thirty-five years or so, right?  Apart from that being a pretty big puddle to jump...

Suave, you've got plenty to work with if you're assigned horror or thriller - truth is stranger than fiction! Smile

This last one was just a couple of miles from my house!  there is really no winning with the snakes: if it too hot then they come out to find shade or a drink.  If is raining then they come out to find somewhere dry.  I found one going past my front porch the other day, not too big only a yard long, so I have been snake proofing my back screen door that had a bout half and inch space underneath it - bubble wrap does wonders.

In Thailand it's ALWAYS too hot, raining, or both.  I guess this is the point.  Wake up, de-snake the bedroom (is it possible to snakeproof a dwelling there?), de-snake a path to the bathroom...

So what took you to Snakeland anyway?
