I thought I'd pay homage to St. Patrick's Day today by talking about my fear of snakes since, according to mythology, St. Patrick drove the snakes from Ireland.
You may think a fear of snakes is common and rational, and yes, I'm afraid of snakes in general but...BUT what I'm really afraid of is a snake coming up through the toilet and biting me right on the ass.
Because that's rational, right?
It's especially rational considering there are pretty much only harmless garter snakes in the area where I live. What are the odds one is going to make it through the septic system and up through my toilet to bite me in the ass.
BUT I STILL WORRY ABOUT IT.
