and he’s taking a walk and sees a snake laying in the middle of the sidewalk. Most people would just walk around it and leave it be. Not my dad. He wasn’t sure if it was alive and wanted to just check and see if it was. Before he did, he noticed it looked like a Copperhead. (From the NCSU website: “A Copperhead snake bite needs medical attention, is extremely painful, and may cause extensive scarring and loss of use. Many people are bitten while trying to kill or handle the snake. Don’t take chances — avoid these snakes.”) Well aware of the danger of a copperhead, he waltzed on up and kicked it anyways. I can’t remember if it was alive or not, but he kept walking. Moral of the story… fuck snakes get cardio.
