If you live in Malawi long enough, you'll probably have a snake in your house. I thought I might have by passed this life experience, much like avoiding malaria (knock on wood), but no such luck.
Even after having lived in Malawi for almost two years, I am still a tourist. How do I know? You might be a tourist if YOU FILM THE SNAKE YOU CAUGHT IN YOUR BATHTUB BEFORE YOU
Truth, I tried to remove the snake by putting it in a box and taking it outside. It was only a small, blind snake that resembled a worm. However, I am a squirmy girl and it was wiggling too much for me to coerce it into a box. So I ended up ... you're not going to like this. I end up throwing rocks at it and then sending it down the drain. Basically, I tortured, paralyzed, and then drowned the sucker. I, kind of, felt bad about it. Kind of.
