I learned a long time ago if you work/play in a snake pit long enough you be bitten.
Snakes are tricky animals, one mistake can end your life. The beauty of it all is if you know you’re working/playing in a snake pit you do a few things to protect yourself in the event that today is that faitful day.
I knew where I was and prepared myself. Only thing I forgot to protect was my heart, and it hurts. Never get attached to snakes. They bite.
