This is hysterical. You have a boy after my own heart. One little typo - use than instead of that.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and am still chuckling at the picture of the MC bolting out of bed.
What a great story. You said so much without dragging it out. I am like you, so lived it all with you. You did a great job allowing the reader to feel, all that you were feeling and even though I laughed at almost all of it, felt bad about your nightmares. I believe I just might think of this story every April 1st from now on!
Yikes! Ones of my worst nightmares, as well. Nice storytelling in this entry.
This is well written, and, although short, very satisfying. A particularly strong, funny last line. Great job!
"and occasional nightmares for the first three years we had the snake" Wow! I'm impressed at your mothering instinct getting you through 3 years of snake ownership when you have a phobia. Cute, well written humor with a good last-line punch.
LOL! to your humorous ending.. I'm glad April 2nd arrived with everyone still intact. :) I could see all this clearly. :)
