I’ve done this before, but I’ll do it again. Hi, I’m mad, in case we haven’t met!
The Rules: The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Thanks to Mon for nominating me, I said I’d give it a try and here I am!
Well since very few, if any, have bothered to take up the challenges I’ve sent their way, I’ve decided to forgo nominations this time. My Vulcan side tells me I’m either too bad at matching challenges and people (and yes, I put in effort at that) or people don’t really care. I’m not going to say I’m throwing it open for anyone wishing to take the challenge up either.
Found this snakeskin a few springs ago in the hospital premises where I used to work. The whole thing was about seven feet long and shed skin shrinks so there was a 7 feet+ snake somewhere on the premises. We never found it.
A close up of the beautiful pattern on the skin. I had no idea but local superstition held finding shed snakeskin very auspicious. People from all over were asking me for a piece of it to take home for luck. I didn’t want to break up this perfect piece though. Luckily I found another snakeskin that same afternoon (no I wasn’t a veterinary doc working in a zoo, I swear) and since that wasn’t intact, I happily broke it off and gave it to all and sundry. I wonder what luck it brought them…. Sadly I lost my piece while shifting to my own place. Or maybe earlier. I found another few personal items missing from my almirah just now.
I just thought of a few snake oil salesman jokes that could come my way…..
