It didn't come out.
I had to decide that if I really wanted to wear those boots today, I needed to pull out whatever was in there by hand. I took a deep breath, not sure what I would find, reached in, and pulled out a small garter snake!
As I let out a not-so-manly squeal, I whipped the door open and released the snake back to nature, rapidly, to say the least!
As I stood there in utter disbelief as to what just occurred, I couldn't help but chuckle, thinking, "I could not make this stuff up."
I am completely predictable, and struggle with taking life a bit too seriously at times. This moment forced me to stop a minute and laugh. It is so good to laugh. Life is unpredictable at times, let's step out of the perpetual motion we are in, take a look at our lives, and laugh. We can do this, together.
Until next time.
