YOUR STORY: The snake I didn't see

WALKING along at my usual pace along the usual path, I did not see the curled up snake.

First time in my life I had been that close to a snake and even though I knew what to and what not to do, I did everything wrong.

I Scared the snake as well as myself, because I leapt feet into the air - arms as well and I am lucky when I came down that it didn't break me.

Sad thing is, even though I travelled the same pathways for days after, the fear has set in that I cannot walk where snakes live.
