He looked like this...
And guess what? I didn't scream!!
And guess what else? He didn't slither away. He just kept his eyes locked on me and followed my every move as I was working in the bed. He kept flicking his tongue at me though.
I just went about working and I guess he eventually got bored of watching me as he just slowly slithered around all of the tender greens sprouting and mosied on somewhere else.
I feel so accomplished now, LOL!
