I was outside this afternoon practicing my fencing technique when my kids came running up blabbering about a couple of snakes nearby. We grabbed a couple of 5 gallon buckets and some gardening tools and headed on over to see if we couldnt scoop these suckers up. The kids enjoyed a good chuckle when I danced around and poked at the snakes with my foil (a foil is a specific type of weaponry used in the art of fencing for you peasants). One snake lunged at me but I was to quick for his strike. I was able to lure the snakes into one of the buckets and we took them back to the garage. My kids did a great job this week of keeping their rooms clean so I'm going to allow them to kill the snakes later on tonight at our cookout by whatever method they chose. Anyhoo, I've been out here poking at them with my foil for a solid hour getting them good and agitated for tonight. Maybe I'll invite that loser brother of mine over and serve him up the ol' als ice bucket challenge with these snakes at the bottom. I know he's too poor to donate the money required by the challenge so it'll serv him right.
