My Milk Snake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

Against the behest of my family and friends, I went to this year's Wasatch Reptile Expo at the Fair Grounds. It's like one step trashier than the state fair itself, which happens to be another yearly event I enjoy.

I went with my old friend Nate Ross who I ironically teas
ed for owning a snake in high school. Friendships were strengthened, mullets were witnessed, and I came home with Milky the Milk Snake.I made him the perfect cage too. It's exactly what I would want if I were a milk snake.
I've also been listening to a lot of 80's butt rock lately and I'm considering buying a Trans Am. More on that later.

All that passive voice makes me think President Monson was relating the snake purchase in Conference!

Somehow I knew Nate was involved in this story from the instant I saw the photos...

Oh, and I approve of the purchase of the Trans Am, provided you grow the obligatory Burt Reynolds mustache.

P.S. When I first read the title of the post only I was certain this was going to be a breastfeeding muse.

I'm a little dissapointed. I was hoping it would be a big snake because then I could borrow it and bring it to any work functions, parties or barbeques I have coming up. Bummer.

Yes! I knew we were friends for a reason. I have a pet frog, which officially puts me in "eccentric single lady" territory. Your snake and Kermit should totally be friends.

Love the snake. don't let Josh know or he will say if they have one we should get one. I am so jealous that you don't have to go back to work. Go you... although I have only worked 3 times in the last 3 weeks.. (I keep telling them to put me on call) So I still get the sweet benefits without working as much, but I am sure that will change soon when pneumonia season comes around. Okay you HAVE to buy this DVD.. I thought I would make it to the gym lots, BUT I just can't wake up early enough to do it because every little sleep I can get is precious to me. So when Preston is awake/or asleep I work out. He gets a kick out of me sweating to the beat.
We NEED to meet up!! How about Friday?!?

So Buckran, your more into the geographical butt rock bands. I like your style.
