Not your typical work conversation

Note to reader: I’m in South Texas for work with a photographer.

Photographer Craig: “Let’s go over here and get some shots. Maybe with that turkey in the background?”
Lincee…very calmly: “Craig. There’s a rattlesnake.”

Craig…just as calm: “Where?”
Lincee: “Step to your right. It’s under the bench you are standing by.”

Craig steps away and begins taking pictures of rattlesnake while Lincee retrieves our King Ranch wildlife biologist as if it were no big deal. Lincee and Craig pow wow by a tree while being eaten to death by mosquitoes as the guide decides the best way to “harvest” the snake.

Craig: “I think we handled that well.”
Lincee: “Considering my initial reaction was to scream my head off and run the opposite direction, I’d say so.”

Yikes, I would have started screaming on the spot. Good work!

yeah, that’s not something I typically say at work. Or ever, for that matter. 🙂 Impressed by how calm you were! Can you post the pics?

Oh my gosh! I totally would have freaked out. About a month ago, I came out of my mom’s house and noticed a snake coiled up in the driveway, directly between the back door and my car–I ran inside and told my dad and he grabbed one of his shotguns (hello, Texas). My mom instantly freaked out–not over the snake, but over the fact that my dad thought he was going to shoot a hole in her driveway!

Long story short–the snake was already dead. The neighbor’s cat had brought it to our home to impress us, just like your resident cat brought you the dead bird. Thanks, kitty.

Oh man – I need to get used to stories like this. We’re moving to the wilderness where there are lots of snakes. Ew! Good thing you guys stayed calm and didn’t freak the thing out!

Just catching up on Prime Time in No Time on Yahoo, and caught Matty poking some fun at the Bachelor! He hosted on Monday, July 28th, for Frank Nicotera who’s on vacay this week. He’s handsome as ever!

Lincee, way to stay calm over the snake! I would have immediately had a heart attack…

Please tell me you have seen and will write something witty about the “he said/she said” over Matty and Shayne’s engagement ring!
