its dreams like this that make me not want to get out of bed
January 20, 2010


Last night I dreamt that I moved into my dream house. I got the deal of the century on it too - even I couldn't believe how low my monthly payments were and I wondered why I rented as long as I did. Everything was fine and dandy except for one little oddity. I kept hearing this weird rustling and rattling noise coming from everywhere but I could not see - the walls, the rafters, the baseboards.

Then one night I was lying in bed and Plum started barking at something on the floor. I turned the flashlight on, looked down and saw the meanest nastiest looking snake slithering around and side winding on my nice new gleaming hard wood floors. It was hunting us, rearing its head up trying to get me and Purdy.

Trapped with an angry snake in the house, being stalked by it. My absolute worst nightmare imaginable.

After having the inspector come in I learned that my dream home was sitting on a rattlesnake den and was completely infested from the foundation up. The only way to get rid of them was to tear the house down and blow it up with dynamite.

Note to self - before I commit to buying any house make sure it has been thoroughly checked for snake dens.
