You Found a WHAT WHERE?

Could someone please explain how a four foot yellow snake entered into the lobby of our front building?

I'm pretty sure that's a first in the seventy five years my family has lived here.

Granted, there is a courtyard with small gardens between the two buildings but it isn't a nature conservancy by any stretch of the imagination.

Possible causes:

1. Someone East Village drug addict just realized their pet snake is missing.

2. It's an initial sign of the impending Rapture that George W. Bush is looking forward to.

3. A scare tactic made by a maniacal real estate developer in an effort to get his hands on skyrocketing property - currently inhabited by actors, writers, social workers, artists, musicians, other nice people and pets.

Look, I'm a New Yorker. Other than household pets, my version of urban wildlife is rats, mice, roaches, waterbugs, flys and pigeons.

Snakes are not in my portfolio.

Maybe it's your new doorman?

Either that or I'll go with your real estate developer theory, they took this one right out of a Scooby Doo episode.

I hate snakes

evi - the doorman theory may be the answer. I thought I saw Lucifer in the neighborhood looking for a job.

Lady - I'm right with you in the snake haters brigade. I'm sure that scooby agrees.

I was born in the year of the snake. When I was a kid, I killed a garden snake. That might explain my great luck huh?

BTW If the doorman offers you an apple, just pass.

I think it was a courier. Did it have a messenger bag and a bike?

Jin - I share your "delight" with snakes. eeewwwwww!

Kranki - Actually he looked more like a professional dog walker. He seemed to be carrying an ipod.
