The deal has been struck, the virgin sacrificed, the gods appeased. I await my new carpet python to eat two more meals, then I can pick it up. That should be roughly two to three weeks from now. So, I have time to think of a name... or for other people to think of a name. I have already picked the one I want, but they change looks so much as they grow, I might change my mind when I pick it up. But if I get the one I liked on Sunday, it will be a girl. So let's hear some suggestions. (The above photo is something close to what it will look like. I will update with an actual pic when I get mine.)
What's the prize, you might ask? Well, it's simply the satisfaction of knowing that you have named something that will live for twenty to thirty years, and I will say it's name lovingly every day as I try to get it not to bite me. It would look something like this:
"Easy, now, easy, come on girl... you sure do have an evil smile on your face today. OK, I'm just gonna reach in and slowly pick you up, so... $@%&* (insert your entry here), you legless worm! I'm gonna make a belt out of you if you do that again!"
