I'm used to it. What's annoying is when people hear echos of thoughts that were never there in the first place!

It would be a Corn Snake from you, wouldn't it, seeing that most of 'em are red/orange!
I've always liked snakes. One time, before DH and I were married, we spent a weekend at his parents' house. In the morning, DH and his father were sorting out a woodpile, in preparation for a delivery of wood later that day. I heard my future FIL yell, "_____, if you've got any sense, you'll jump out the window!" (It was a 2 story house, bedrooms upstairs, of course). I hear a knock on the door, and there stands my then boyfriend, holding 3 Garter Snakes that they'd found sheltering in the woodpile. Imagine FIL's surprise when I came downstairs holding 2 of them!
That's a Rough Green Snake, and according to Wikipedia, you may have them in your area. You might have Smooth Green Snakes in your area, too.
Weird fact: we have occasionally found Green Snakes that have been run over on the road. When a Green Snake has been dead for a day or two, it turns sky blue!
The cutest snake that I've ever seen was one that I'd bet deerman would approve of, too. It was a Red-bellied Snake hatchling. They are often almost brick red in my neck of the woods; this guy was, and wasn't more than about 3 inches long!
