I found Osiris this morning before I left for work!
I was walking out of the kitchen and he was crawling in. I was so happy to see him. I figured I’d find him after I bought Isis and Ra. So now I have 3 snakes… the more the merrier, right? I’m glad I have that big tank now.
I bought two snakes, a male and a female. They are both ball pythons. The female is a high morph. I named her Isis and the male Ra. I still hope I find Osiris. Since I bought them I probably will find him.
I also bought 2 new bongs, 2 more blacklights, and another disco ball. I also got several more candle holders. I’m a candle freak.
I have an unconventional pet. His name is Osiris and he is a beautiful ball python. I call him Osiris – after the Egyptian God of Death and Rebirth/Resurrection. I’ve had him since the end of February 2006.
Due to the Christian conditioning of my childhood I was terrified of snakes. I thought they were the embodiment of pure evil.
I faced my fear a few years ago at the Tulsa State Fair. There was this huge sixteen foot Burmese python that was taking pictures with people. Her name is Harriet and I decided to take a picture with her.
I sat in the chair while this guy wrapped this enormous snake around my body. At first I was panic-stricken and I worried that I would have an anxiety attack. It took the guy about ten minutes to get Harriet situated around me. I was amazed at how tame she was. I took the picture and afterwards I noticed that my fear of snakes had dwindled a bit.
