I went home Friday and napped for about an hour. When I got up, I walked past the entry hall and noticed something on the floor. It was an 8 inch baby black snake, 15 feet from where I'd been sleeping! I live alone, so I was left to my own devices! I did the first thing I thought of--picked it up with paper towels and flushed it down the toilet. It started wiggling and thrashing around and sticking out its gross little tongue. I flushed every 5 minutes for 3 hours to make sure it was gone. But I'm totally freaked out! How would you have gotten rid of it--just in case it ever happens again!
