For Goodness Snakes!

My, how times have changed!! My boys were invited to a birthday party today. We responded to the cute little invitation and were all geared up to celebrate our soccer buddy's birthday. The invitations hinted to a snake theme. What fun for boys, right!
We show up for the party. I plop down on the sofa, greet the guests and visit with the children that are already there. A few minutes later I hear the words "real snakes". Then I notice the mat spread across the living room floor and the two "guests" wearing shirts with snake logos. Then it starts to set in. The pretty decorative trunks beside the man and woman wearing the snake shirts are holding.....SNAKES!
Fast forward...18 children are sitting around in a circle passing pythons and various small snakes around. They're wrapping them on their necks and kissing them!
Whatever happened to cut and paste crafts, pinatas, heck informing the parents The Snake Man is coming.
The boys had a blast. I'm just hoping I don't have nightmares!
