I know alot of people here are going to say this is another joke. After the last April fools joke I pulled I seem to have lost creditability here. I swear every word of what I am going to post here is true. Look at the date, it's not April 1st.
I have always had this memory, I have always known that this had to be a real event but I had no proof or anybody else to back it up.
First I will tell what I remembered.
I have no idea how old I was. I'm guessing about 5 or 6, I may have been younger. I remember being taking in my moms car to my step grandparents house. (Yes the ones that were married 71 years) The road in front of their house is a curve. I remember being taken to the curve. There was a snake on the curve. I remember this snake as being huge. I remember the snake reaching from one side of the curve over half way to the other. From one side of the curve to the other is about 25 ft. It was about a big around as 3/4 the size of a soccer ball. I remember it being alive and moving. There were people standing around this snake.
That is my memory. I have often thought about this memory and I have tried to make sense of it, and I have tried to explain it in my own mind. Since I thought there was no known snakes that would be that size native to the area, I had come up with two possibilities. One, this was a dream or a figment of my imagination, even though it seemed very real and I have no history of remembering things that never happened. Or two, It was an adult python or boa that had escaped from somewhere.
Now the second part of the story.
While I was at home this week, I was talking to my mom and the topic came to snakes. I thought of the memory that I have had so I asked her about it. She told me that there was a huge snake that was caught and killed in a swamp in Abbottsburg, NC (about 5 miles from where I remember this). The snake was brought to the same place that I had remembered it. It was stretched from one side of the road to the other. She was told it was a rattlesnake. She said it was over 15ft. long and about as big around as my leg. The only difference from what I remember and what she told me is that the snake I remember was alive.
I want to know what everybody else thinks about this story.
