So, I was sitting at my computer in my basement office, reading my email. I became vaguely aware of something on the wall directly behind my monitor. After a few seconds, the small part of my brain that isn't devoted to what the computer is doing sent a bit of an alert: “Hey, that thing on the wall is moving.” The alert kicked up to Infrared Level 5 when I realized it was a two-and-a-half foot long snake!
My wife heard me exclaim something unprintable, and came down to find out what was up. We sort of stared at it for a while as it made its way slowly up the unfinished wall. Eventually, we figured out that the best thing was to just go ahead and grab it and let it go outside. I put on my work gloves and got ready to do the deed, but the closer I got to it, the slower I moved. A bit like Xeno's Paradox, really. Eventually, my wife got tired of waiting for me and took the gloves and grabbed it herself. She rocks.
