"You knew damn well what I was when I...boarded"!
President Trump's C-PAC Conference speech with his rendition of Aesop's Fable reminded me of my raging Ophidiophobia & any movie with Snakes!
My first symptoms? Panic attack on Election Day. My nemesis: The Yellow Bellied Bone-Spur Snake!
I know, I know - New York City is not their natural habitat - but where do you think Snakeskin Wallets come from & all with your choice of free pics inside:
If you aren't familiar with the Fable, 'The Farmer & the Snake'; the moral of the story is:
'Learn from my fate not to take pity on a scoundrel'
But, what really comes to my mind; is a song from the 1951 movie musical "Royal Wedding" with Fred Astaire & Jane Powell singing,
"How Could You Believe Me When I Said I Loved You When You Know I've Been a Liar All My Life"!
Sorry folks, it's a mouthful - but you just don't forget those obscure songs & believe me, I've tried!
My kids know I wouldn't be caught dead watching that creepy 2006 "Snakes on a Plane" movie in a theatre or safely in my snake-less house.
I won't even go to Monty Python comedies!
It's not surprising that 1/3 of all adults have this same phobia; but I also have a fear of Snake Charmers & Baskets - frigin' Picnics put me over the edge!
It's so bad; I dream of Snakes - nah, forget about Freud; I'm going with last night's Chimichanga Grande!
Right now, I'm starting to freak-out big time! I've got a butt-crack Plumber hangin' over my sink with a long somethin' somethin' & I don't know whether to grab a Net or call the Cops!
I hope I never have to use this tip - but you know what they say - if you're ever bitten by one; never suck out the venom ...or vote Republican again!
