So yesterday while we were up in Syracause, I came within three inches of stepping on a snake. A SNAKE people!
I know….I mean honestly how have we not talked about this yet? First of all, it’s October…..in SYRACUSE. There should be at least seven feet of snow on the ground by now.
But no, I find the only snake still out of hibernation in the entire northern hemisphere and come within two and a half inches of stepping on it.
I then proceeded to jump twelve feet in the air and do this side step worthy of square dance…all before jumping on Justin’s shoulders. Where I remained for the rest of the day.
*insert heebie jeebies full-body shudder here*
So that of course got me thinking all about fear, and I thought about writing this super inspiring (believe me, it would’ve been) post about overcoming your fear. But like Julia & I often say, sometimes a snake in the grass is just a snake in the grass. And it doesn’t need to be anything more than that. Because let’s be honest, a snake in the grass- when discovered and revealed there hiding for what it is- can throw you for enough of a loop without making it anything more than that.
See what I did there? It’s deep…you’ll have to think about it. :)
So all of this has absolutely nothing to do with scary movies whatsoever. Except that I’ll take being scared by one of those over coming within 1 1/4 inch of stepping on a snake anyday. :) So in honor of Halloween and all things scary, we thought we’d run a little random contest.
**Let me know the thing that you are most afraid of in the comments below, and I’ll be picking one lucky winner to win the scary movie of your choice. OR if your thing you’re most afraid of IS scary movies, then I’ll just send you a copy of Hocus Pocus. Because let’s be honest, that movie is DELIGHTFUL!
Happy week of Halloween y’all!
