Somedays, life can get crazy when your pants are around your ankles...

 
Today was one of those days... Ya'all are NEVER gonna believe what happened to me today!! Seriously I am still in shock!
 
We have been working really hard here at the Hi D house...  Granite counters were finished today... So after Dave our granite guy left...   I was ready for a nap... Sam was ready too... Heck the 3 dogs were ready also...
So we all laid down and about 20 minutes into our nap... I had to go pee... So I got up and went into the bathroom, pulled down my shorts and was getting ready to pee when all of a sudden I noticed a 6 foot snake about a foot and a half in front of me... laying stretched out along the baseboard.... All I could see was the body and tail, not the head.  The rest of the snake was behind the bathroom door that was in the open position... I quickly looked for a rattle at the tail and didn't see one...    I wanted to scream but I thought the dogs would come running and I didn't know if it was poisonous! So I pulled up my shorts... and got out of the bathroom stealth like... I grabbed the bathroom door and shut it... I didn't want the dogs to try and kill it... I walked into the bedroom and said
 "SAM! There is a big FUCKING snake in the bathroom!!!"
 "Are  you kidding?"
"Look at me... Do I LOOK like I am kidding you?" 
So Sam opens  the bathroom door slowly and peeks in, then shuts the door.  "Uh.... YA that IS a big snake... Where is our desert book?"
[We have this book called 'The Audubon Society Guide to the Desert' It has pictures and information about snakes, lizards, scorpions, plants etc... So we look up the snake and its coloring and finally come to the conclusion its a Gofer snake and harmless... it eats rats, lizards and other critters that live in the desert...
It doesn't have a rattle but when it gets angry it hisses REALLY loudly... We can confirm that it DOES in fact hiss as loudly as a rattle! 
So Sam and I put the dogs in our bedroom and shut the door... then Sam went in the bathroom with a broom and a clothes hamper...  He got the snake in the hamper and we took it out on the front porch and double checked its coloring with the book... Yup it was a BIG gofer snake...  I DO NOT like snakes but if it eats rats then its ok in my book... So we took it outside our fence and walked it into the desert and let it go...
 
I know your thinking "How in HELL did it get in your bathroom?"... We believe it got into the attic and then because Sam sealed up all the holes from our water heater cabinet going into the house, it had no choice but to come down from a hole in the bathroom ceiling we have right now from construction...  Sam has sealed up the hole now...
 
I don't know how I did it but I hurt my back somehow getting off the toilet and out of the bathroom!  When I move just the right way I get a shooting pain down my back... I must have tensed up and twisted just the right way and pulled a muscle or something...  I didnt notice it right away...I started feeling it when we were walking out to the desert with the snake in the hamper...
 
OMG I still can't believe that happened...  and why did it have to happen while I had my shorts around my ankles getting ready to pee...
 
Things that make you go hhmmmm!
 
Don't worry I have pictures but you have to wait till I get home before you see them I am still at the HiD house...

I thought this was going to be a naughty story.  I mean, you talk about your pants down around your ankles and a big snake, what else am I supposed to conclude?  LOL  Glad you gave the snake the boot.  Take care chickie.

OMG !! I would have DIED of fear. Thank God Sam was there.  Good idea to have that book around to identify.
Your back problems sounds like mine !! You get shooting pain when you move just the right way? It's probably muscle spasms. If it doesnt get better in a few days go to your doctor!! IF anything, they give you some good meds for it. But with mine it's been weeks and weeks of physical therapy to heal it.

Sam is now a snake rangler.
