Here’s a true story of a woman that discovered friendship, love and warmth in the unlikeliest of places. However, her fairytale quickly dashed away when her beloved disappeared without a trace. Her beloved was what one could call a cold hearted snake. Literally. After her divorce, she bought a snake and got pretty attached until one day the snake slithered away when she wasn’t looking.

Yes, an odd story indeed. It doesn’t stop there, however.

Like any love lost, they sometimes reappear in your dreams or even your mom’s dreams when she’s staying in your basement on a familial visit. When over bagels for breakfast, mom reveals she had a dream about a snake, it’s hard not to wonder. Although it’s unclear if mom’s dream was true, we can look to the saying, “let the bird fly, if it comes back it is yours, if it doesn’t, it never ever was yours,” is pretty on point here. Just switch the bird out for a snake this time.
