Snake in the Bath

How would you like to find a snake in your bath? A nasty one too!
We had just moved into a new house, the which had been empty for so long that
everything was in a terrible mess. Anna and I Decided we would clean the bath first, so
we set to, and turned on the tap.
Suddenly to my horror, a snake's head Appeared in the plug-hole. Then slithered out
the rest of his long thin body. He twisted and turned on the slippery bottom of the bath,
Hissing and spitting at us.
Reaction / Incident
For an instant I Stood there quite paralysed. Then I yelled for my husband, WHO luckily
Came running and killed the snake with the handle of a broom. Anna, WHO was only
three at the time, was quite interested in the whole business. Indeed I had to pull her
out of the way or she'd probably have leant over the bath to get a better look!
Ever since then I've always put the plug in firmly before running the bath water.
