Beauty Shop Snake--OMG

I was so excited to go see Sherrill, my darling cosmetologist yesterday. She is so cute and I really like the way she does my hair. Of course I have to have 3 hours worth of work, because I need dark color on my roots and then I have a highlight and lowlight. Next, comes the cut and then the Chi iron, finally an eyebrow wax and lip wax. Well, I think I am finally looking better now and covering up that gray for another 3-4 weeks.

I'm finally done after all that and since it's pretty late Sherrill has locked the door and has to come to the door with me and let me out. Thank God for that!!! As she unlocks the door and I step out, she starts to scream, I'm thinking OMG what the hell is she screaming at and as I look down I see a 3-4 foot long snake slitthering between my feet and around hers. I see this slithering thing goin so damn fast, right inside the beauty shop!!! Of course we jump out the door and now we are on the outside and the snake is on the inside. We look at each other, shiver and scream again. Then we start to laugh. I'm like what the heck are we going to do now, I can call KB and he can come over and get it for us. She said, well I can call the the owner's husband and I'm sure he will come. So we both get on our phones and the owner's husband is on his way.

KB just says, "Oh WOW, just open the doors and shoo is out the door." I'm like "Yeah, right". I'm not going back in there with that snake.

Well, since the owner's husband is coming, the owner calls the police, because she doesn't know if it is poisonous or not. Sherrill and I sneak back in beside the snake hoping it stays along the wall. We get by him and Sherrill gets a broom and gets on top of a chair. I'm like if you start trying to move him and he heads my way, I'm going to have a freakin' heart attack. So I get behind the desk on top of a chair. Sherrill moves the broom toward the snake and he starts to wind around like he is going to strike, then he finally turn and starts looking toward the door. She just calmly keeps the broom pushing him out slowly. He gets close to the door and goes up the wall first. The he finally goes out the door but gets behind the door and starts up the wall. So I'm dang sure not going out the door. Now the policeman shows up with his expertise. He tells Sherrill to throw him the broom. He starts after him and says, "dang he is a fast one." The snake starts around the side of the building and the cop never sees him again.

OH, Yeah, while we are on the chairs and the snake is heading to the door, I told Sherrill get your phone and take a picture, or no one will ever believe this happened to us. So this you see at the top of the post is the snake as he was trying to go up the wall before heading out the door.



  1. I am ROLLING!!!!! I would have killed to be there. That is hysterically funny. I would have crapped myself tho.

  2. I can't believe you went back in!!!! Oh my gosh, I would have just left. yeah, im that kind of friend. Hysterical!

  3. I would have been shaking for hours. Yes, you are a good friend to stay there with her, but you did say she is your favorite cosmotologist!!

    I can't imagine coming face to face with that big ol' texas beauty snake... do you think she was there for a wax or a pedicure???

  8. The whole thing sounds about like an I Love Lucy episode to me, with you and Sherrill being Lucy and Ethel! ;-Þ
