W I L L I E S ! I've got the Willies!

Willies, Heebie Jeebies, Shivers, Goose Bumps...etc. As I'm preparing this post, I have labored breathing and can't put my feet under the desk where I'm typing. The pictures are putting me over the edge.

My friend just called needing some help. They got new carpet a few days ago so the heat vent covers were off around the house. Her son, has a python snake...can you see where this is going? Well, the son left the snake aquarium cover off and now the snake is missing! It's in the heating ducts!!! They have constructed a wire and mirror system to find the snake in the vent but can't reach it. Have any suggestions?

I don't like snakes. I'm freaking out! I would have had to stay at a hotel last night, oh WAIT! No, I wouldn't....I WOULD NEVER HAVE LET A SNAKE IN MY HOUSE IN THE FIRST PLACE! I hate snakes, always have!

What's more disturbing is that my friend was trying to calm ME down..."It's a nice snake, it's not poisonous."

I say...who the HELL cares? It's a snake. A snake is a snake, poisonous or not.

In high school, my friend, Rina, would chase me around her house with their black snake. I would cry, seriously, real tears and run outside and she would still chase me...yes...I call her my friend???? Well, years later they told me the cat FINALLY got the snake and killed it... uhhh...too bad? I'm all torn up about that...NOT! (Still love you Rina!)

What's at the top of your list of fears? Me, in case you can't tell? SNAKES!!!

I have to say, that I don't mind snakes and do love pythons. Very cool kind of snake! As long as they're not poisonous snakes, I can handle them.

Perhaps tying up a few mice and dangling them over the vent covers will persuade the snake back into public, and luckily into his cage!

Snakes, Spiders, Cockroaches, Big bugs of any kind.....I agree, there will never be a snake in my house as a "pet." I seriously just got the chills looking at your pictures. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Oh I feel for you, I would lose it!!!! They would have to hospitalize me. I CANNOT stand those vile things. When I was little and would visit my grandparents in Idaho, they had a creek in front of their house and I was always the one that would see a snake and I would go running into the house screaming. My grandma would ask where I saw it and then she would go out and PLAY WITH IT! I still have nightmares about that!! YUCK!!!!

Beach girl and Angie & willy have it right. Spiders and ANY crawly thing.....YUCK!! I watched a thing on American Funniest Videos where two guys put a LIVE tarantula on their brother (unbenknownst to him). I was totally freaking out (although not as much as him when he found out!)

My son totally digs snakes and I do not! My son had a snake as a pet for one winter until I finally put my foot down hard. I love to watch my boys & girl catch them but it's a catch & release sport.
