Mom Made a New Friend – Gulps

21 Mar

Okay mom you can leave your new friend at the store okay – gulps.  Mom and dad went to the pet store to get some things for me and my bros here at the Hotel Thompson.  While they were in the store, they came across this guy who was being ‘walked’.  Rolls eyes – really?  He needs to be ‘walked’.  And we all know my mom, she hasn’t met a stranger yet that she won’t talk to.

So mom – with dad in tow – walks up to said stranger and inquires his name.  His name was – are you ready for this? – Chester.  Yeah okay.  So mom did something so outrageous.  She asked if she could touch Chester.  Mom – what in the heck are you thinking??  Chester gave his okay… something about his tongue sending approval.  I don’t want to know.  So while Chester’s head was turned, mom petted him.  He wasn’t greasy or slimy or anything like that.  He felt weird to the touch.

Then mom did the most insane thing.  She told daddy to give her his hand to touch Chester.  Now understand, all of this time dad is standing there and doesn’t have a clue who or what Chester is… I mean would you guess snake with a name like that?  Well dad the ever loving trustworthy guy he is reaches out his hand and touches Chester.  That’s when the guessing game began – what is Chester.  Dad thought he might have been a bearded dragon or another type of lizard.  But bless his heart he didn’t freak out when mom told him it was a snake.

Would you have freaked?  I told mom Chester was off limits here at the Hotel Thompson.  I mean OFF LIMITS!

    I considered getting a constrictor once, but I was afraid it would eat the dog. )I was the kid who caught snakes and scared the camp counselors.) (I was also the Mom who let the boys bring snakes in the house and play with them until their dad -who was terrified of snakes – got home.)

    Chester the snake….an unusual name for a snake but what did I expect, “Death.” Jimmy is a very good sport. I would’ve freaked out and mom too. Dad would’ve stayed home. mol

    Your mom is, I just don´t know is she amazing or totally insane. Does she have eyeglasses, or does she need ones, Chester is a snake, for sure. He looks beautiful, but is his state of mind also beautiful.
