    Don't worry, it's not what you're thinking.

    I wanted my dad to wake me up early so I could hear my rooster crow. I stretched my arms, and felt something cold and so smooth I thought it was wet. I grabbed my light and turned it on. Guess what it was! A snake! It was my pet corn snake Vladimir, but it still scared me. He just looked at me like, "Hey! Wazzup?" The thing is, I have a loft bed. His cage is on the floor. It turns out, I didn't close the cage all the way the last time I fed them. He was also cold because the heat lamp wasn't working and his cage is under my bed, so I guess I was just something warm to curl up next to. There were a hundred different things that went through my mind that I thought he was. Like a worm, a slug and those things whose names escaped my mind in Star Wars that they tried to kill the princess with. If you know what I'm taking about. now that I think about it, it was a good thing he ended up in my bed because I would have never found him if went somewhere else. His lady friend didn't bother to escape. Isn't that crazy?

    I may have nightmares tonight. Glad it was a snake you knew though I guess, although I am not sure how much better that makes finding a snake in your bed.

    [​IMG] When my son was young he had a pet garden snake. Him and his friends were always holding it then "accidentally" letting it go in his room. If he wasn't found by bed time, my son would wake up and that snake "Conrad" would be in his bed!

    Snakes scare the bajeebies out of me. I probably would have been scared stiff. [​IMG]

    You may have still found him. Several years ago, my son got a pet snake. He didn't even have it for an hour when it escaped. We looked, but couldn't find it. I really expected to find it eventually by the smell. A few days later, our son stayed at a friend's house, and our daughter stayed at another friend's house. My husband got up real early, and started doing some work in our son's room. I tried to go back to sleep, but he was just too noisy, so I got up, and started playing computer games. All of a sudden, I hear my hubby yelling DD, come quick, it's the snake! I walk in our son's room, and there on top of the baseboard heater was the snake. I asked my hubby, what do you want me to do? He said, catch it! So, I did.

    Now our daughter has a snake. And, it got out one day. We could not find it, but kept looking. Then one day, I picked up a shirt that had fallen on the floor. There, under the shirt was the snake. It took me a moment to realize what I was looking at. But, as soon as I did, I picked it up. Our daughter was still asleep, so I woke her up to let her know I had found him. She was excited, but didn't really want him in bed w/her, so I stuck it in it's cage.

    So, it is possible to find them, even if they don't crawl into bed w/you.

    *snicker* WAY better you than me, that got a shudder... but your reaction was a definitely giggle.

    Vlad's just looking for a little love is all.

    [​IMG] That would be terrifying.

    By the way, how did you decide on "Vladimir" as a name? Whenever I hear it, all I can think of is Vladimir Lenin, Communist dictator.

    Vlad the Impaler is what comes to my mind...

    Bit of an odd name for a critter with no hands to hold a spear/sword but then I do so LOVE sarcasm.

    It's still an... interesting name for a snake. [​IMG]
