I had just checked in to a hotel for another dreaded two-week business training seminar. I was with Randy, my old partner, and another (unfamiliar to me) female co-worker. I was in a panic because I had made the hotel reservation for only one night, not for two weeks.
Construction was going on behind the building due to a flooding problem. They were digging up the ground to install a drainage system.
When I opened the door to my room, the carpet was flooded and soggy and snakes were crawling out from everywhere - from under the bed, under the baseboards, and under my pillow. All the digging was driving them out of the ground.
The snakes were yellow with a diamond pattern. They reminded me of snaky yellowjacket wasps. I was trying to remember the rhyme to determine if they were poisonous. Is it black and yeller, kill a feller? Or is it red and yeller kill a feller? I can never remember.
A couple of the snakes were solid black like chicken snakes. The largest one was a black one and about three-feet long.
I knew I had to rescue my cat from the room who inexplicably I had brought with me and was already in the room.
When one of the snakes crawled up to my foot I woke up.
Had an attack of sleeping sickness today. Went to bed at 10:00 last night and woke up at 11:00 this morning. Ate a bowl of cereal and went back to sleep.
Woke up around 5:00, ate some supper and went back to sleep again. Finally woke up around midnight. Now I'm wide awake and drawing.
