FF55,10/26/12 Mouse and Rat Eater

I got the creepy crawlies
at 5 am on any given morning,
I drove to the Old Mall,
let myself in the back    
and pitta-pattered along the dim
hallways to the pet store.
Then in pitch black to turn on the lights.
Sometimes I tripped over
the bosses 16 foot python
loose for exercise ...

                                 Sorry to say I never knew if the snake
was out or not. Sometimes when I turned on the lights
 his aquarium was full, -or not.
 He was very heavy and powerful,
so he would stay loose till the
boss arrived as late as 10 sometimes -
4 hours wore on my nerves...   Happy Halloween !

Now *that's* a rough working condition! Especially if the snake happened to be hungry. I really liked your comment on my 55-you definitely got it. And despite the automatic shudder, enjoyed this suitably Halloweenish 55 as well.

Wow, if ever there was a Workman's Comp case waiting to happen...
