Yesterday we went to the boy scout roundup and the snake guy did his awesome presentation. As we were going home in the car I asked Nik what he learned. He said, "If you see a snake coming towards you, step on it gently with your boot."
I said, "I'm sure that's not what the snake guy told you to do..."
Nik said, "No. But that's what he did ever time the snake was trying to go."
We had a long discussion about the difference between a trained professional wearing proper protective equipment and seeing real snakes in the wild.
