Do you love snakes? Do you keep them in bed? If yes, you better read this short story about a woman who sleeps with her pet snake. While having your giant python cuddle you at night might sound ridiculous, believe me, this story has an important lesson to tell.
The story goes like this:
“There once was a woman who had a pet snake that she loved very much. The snake was about 7 feet long and one day it just stopped eating. After several weeks of trying everything she could to get the snake to eat, the woman took it to the vet.
The woman explained the situation to the vet and he asked her, “Has your snake been sleeping with you at night or snuggling really close and stretching himself out?”
The woman replied, “Yes he’s been doing it everyday and it makes me so sad that I can’t help him feel better.”
The vet says “Ma’am your snake is not sick, he has been preparing to eat you. He’s been sizing you up everyday so he knows how big he has to be, and not eating so he has enough room to digest you.
Moral of the story: You’ve got to recognize the snakes out there. Just because they seem close to you and sleep in your bed, it doesn’t mean their intentions are good.”
The lesson is clear and it happens in real life. Be careful who you trust, there are a lot of snakes out there.
