I was standing at the window yesterday looking out into the vegetable garden when I saw it. My very own anaconda. Gigantic. Huge. Black with white spots. Big enough to eat me. Or at least my right leg. He was big. I think it was actually a rat snake.
As I was making this for dinner tonight (yum!) I considered omitting the green peppers so that I wouldn’t have to venture out into the snake-infested garden. In the end, I decided that I wouldn’t be chased away from my freshly picked organic produce by a little garden snake gigantic man-eating serpent.
I think I’ll have my kids play on the other side of the yard for a while. They’d be just the right size for anaconda lunch.
