It is not an urban myth?

Okay, so I was telling my husband and friends at dinner that a woman found a python in her toilet, and they started teasing me. I thought maybe I was nuts, but it's true. At least if you believe the news.

I've been thinking about what that would be like. To find yourself seated over a python . . .

Preciosa Dumlao - AHN News Writer
Brooklyn, NY (AHN) - A 38-year-old restaurateur found a 7-foot-long python in her toilet while she was washing her hands early Monday. She said most of the venomous python's body was hidden in the pipes and was trying to come out of her bathroom.

The New Yorker Nadege Brunacci said, "I turned on the light and screamed. It still makes my heart race."

According to Brunacci, when she saw the snake, she yelled for help.

Her landlord came to see what happened and plumbers had to tear down the pipes to trap down the snake.

She said it is questionable how the snake got into her bathroom pipes.

One only hopes that if one ever finds a python in the toilet, one is at the sink, washing one's hands, when it happens.

So as a kid, thinking things might come out of the toilet was a legit worry.

I didn't think python's were poisonous.... They're constrictors, no? Hell, I don't know. That's still one of the scariest things I can think of! At least she, um, didn't 'sit down' and THEN notice!

Here is something that is not an urban myth. I was at Bear Pond Books in Montpelier on Sunday, picked up a copy of Green Mountain Review and found one of your poems in it.

Having stared at the comment box for over 10 minutes, Erin O'Brien has decided that Erin O'Brien is incapable of producing an intelligent comment today. Erin O'Brien apologizes for her lack of wit, charm and usual verve.

Erin O'Brien, however, enjoyed typing the word verve and promises to try very very hard to be at the most relevant place in Cleveland at 5 p.m. this evening.

Thanks Erin and thanks Bobby! What were you doing in Montpelier?

I was in Montpelier because it's the only state capitol without a McDonalds. And it's a 40 minute drive from home. And it was a beautiful October afternoon, with the sun lighting up the gold dome of the statehouse.
