Another slithery snake school story

One of our boys, had unbeknownst to his teacher, taken a dead Bull snake into class in a plastic container.

He had it in his desk for a few days, until yesterday one of the other boys 'dared' him to lift the lid. According to the teacher the stink emanating from that opened box was indescribably bad, unsurprisingly!

She didn't waste anytime in ordering him and his snake out to the nearest external trash can - with a flea in his ear. Boys!

Never a dull day I tell ya!

and here I thought I was the only person who used the word "unbeknownst!" :)

Mom/Mum said...

oh my gosh. I can literally conjur up that smell...once in London a friend's snake escaped from his tank and unfortunately got caught in one of her washing machine pipes. The smell as you walked into her flat is one I'll never forget.... nor did her neighbours!

Oh my God! At least it was dead. If that thing had slithered out in MY classroom you would have heard me scream all the way to your place! That is...as I was taking off down the road with heart palpitations!
