The Snake’s Pajamas

Snavrin the garter snake shivered in the grass and dreamed of being warm-blooded. Life was cold!

That afternoon, a little boy and a little girl caught him. He was terrified!

The girl slipped a set of green pajamas over his neck. Now he was warm!

But he looked pretty silly.

Sydney the Stuttering Snake

Sydney the snake slid down a slippery slope.

Since getting stuck in a snare made of sticks and some string, she’d somehow succumbed to an embarrassing, sibilant stutter. She was sneakily slithering in search of a slimy, secret spot where she could sink into obscurity.

Sadly, she never found it.

Take the Shot

The walls of the canyon echoed with the blast of two shotgun barrels emptying themselves into something or another. Maybe it was a desperate fugitive. Maybe it was the sheriff. Maybe it was a snake or a wildcat. Maybe it was just a cross-eyed bush.

The vultures were curious, regardless.
