I woke up this morning and drove sleepily to work. As soon as I get to my office, I became swamped with people telling me to check the newspaper. I get on to Newsday.com and see the headline and picture:
Man arrested after stroll with python
Turns out one of my student's parents got arrested for walking down the highway with a 17 foot python around his neck. Now realize....I work in the "good neighborhood" where everyone wears abercrombie and has an iphone by the 6th grade.
Oh, in case you are wondering the pythons name is Butterscotch.
