Child Faces Every Human Being's Worst FearCarolyn Castiglia
What’s your worst fear? You may think it’s being forced to live inside Bachelor Brad Womack’s mind for a day or having to eat Jello shots off of The Situation’s gel-covered spikes, but it’s not. Your worst fear is everyone’s worst fear. It’s the universal fear everyone around the world experiences from about age 3 or 4 on. Your worst fear is having to walk through a pit of snakes, or having to face a snake, or most specifically opening the toilet lid to find a snake.
Now one little girl in Germany has had her worst fear come to life.
A 7-year-old German mädchen started screaming for her mutter when she saw a seven-foot-long boa constrictor coming up through her toilet. (One foot of hiss for every year of that poor child’s life!) Wildlife experts tried to capture the snake, but he slithered away down the pipes again.
I swear to God, if that happened to me, I would never sleep again. And I’d be peeing and pooping in a diaper for the rest of my life. Uh. Muh. Guh.
A possible explanation for a snake in your pipes? “People buy these snakes when they are young and they grow very large very quickly and scare the life out of their owners who try to flush them down the lavatory or release them into the drains,” The Daily What reports. Here’s a tip, pet owners: DON’T FLUSH YOUR SNAKE. Better yet, how about just leaving snakes out in the wild, where they belong?
Would you allow your child to have a pet snake?
