After we spent the morning measuring every room in the house, Marcus went in the garage to shop-vac the area we had already started working on. I was upstairs vacuuming when I heard him call for me. When I got downstairs, I saw him holding what looked like a really long, limp rope. Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was a six foot long snake-skin from tip to tail. It even had the eye part still attached. It was really neat... and I can't wait to show it to my students. But on the other hand... does that mean we should be watching out for a six-foot long snake?
Marcus took a picture of me holding it up:
(Yes, that's me in my grubby work clothes with a shocked look on my face because that snake's tail is touching the ground, and I am holding it over my head!!!)
