Mammy is slightly ashamed of herself.
Today, Mammy reached a new low.
Mammy put her 23 month old between herself… and a snake: A teeny, tiny, shitty, scrawny fecking snake.
But Mammy here was so petrified with terror that I hid…BEHIND my baby.
We were at a party which had a (really cool) mini farm outside, all bunnies and hedgehogs and sheep and chickens. Nice animals. Proper animals. 🐏🐑🐇🐰🐁
I was sitting on the floor inside with Princess on top of me, playing happily and chatting to my brother. Next thing, in barges the wee man of the house with a snake…a REAL LIFE living, hissing, breathing, bastarding REPTILE… around his wee shoulders.
The Grannies and Aunties in the room FREAKED out; some with fear and swear words to make even ME blush, others with laughter at their reaction. 😂
I froze in terror, forgot to breathe and HID behind my baby, eyes closed. I couldn’t function… Even when my brother quietly told me “It’s gone…” I couldn’t move. I was afraid that if I opened my eyes, the red-eyed feckingwrither would have been hissing in my face, like an angry wee penis.
The room quietened down. Brother Dearest said it again, laughing “Relax yourself you madwoman, it’s gone.”
I slowly lifted my head and peeped out from behind my little curly headed saviour, to see my cousins looking at me. As I loosened my vice-grip on my poor child, one of my favourite wenches said “Tell me you did NOT just hide from that snake BEHIND your Baby?”
And then they laughed… and laughed and laughed. Bitches.😍
And after I stopped shaking and began breathing again, I too laughed.
Of course the poor wee snake was probably more petrified than I was, and had it been a REAL danger, OF COURSE I would have drop-kicked the slithering bellycrawling demon out the door, but I KNEW she was perfectly safe; partly because her big strong uncle was beside her, and partly because, well, it’s Princess…and she doesn’t KNOW waht fear is. Seriously, she could take on ANYTHING.
Hitler would run away from her if she was in the right mood.
Had it been Mini-Me, there’s a good chance I’d have been out the feckin window.😂😂
Yup. Mammy fail.
I’m not even afraid to admit it. 😣😣😣
(But it gave the cousins a laugh if nothing else. Cough *brats!)
