Sometimes when my son misbehaves I tell him that I had a snicker bar drop out of my camera bag on the other side of the boulders, and if he wants it he’ll have to crawl through that little hole to get it. Of course him being a young boy , and a snicker bar containing chocolate, I knew I had him. He starts crawling with the determination of a creditor who realizes he has actually got you instead of your answering machine (no, that’s never happened to me, I always let the machine get it)! I, of course, wait until he is just about to the hole to tell him about the snakes! The look on their faces is just priceless and well worth the wait.
Okay, for those that take these narratives seriously, it’s just a joke. Those snakes were a good 2 or 3 feet from the hole and there was no candy bar! It’s not like he’s going to crawl to the snake pit for a sugar free granola bar! You have to think these things through.
