Did he really just say that? {12 of 31 Slice of Life}

The reptile lab is a space for zoo volunteers to help the community experience a tortoise or a snake.  During our training we visited this space and got a little behind the scenes experience.  The reptile lab is a very small space; glass windows that open a bit for experiences, a counter, maybe a couple of tanks with reptiles in it and lots of cricket containers on the floor.  It was so small.  I felt like I was in a cockpit of an airplane possibly.  I had just had my brave touch a snake moment and was still trying to recover.  I tried to stay focused on the information being shared all the while thinking, I don't like this space.  I'm not going to able to volunteer here.  

Our small group went to leave the building and our host wanted us to walk through the building and share a couple of animals the guest might ask about.  The first one was a new to the zoo snake with a big sign venomous and yes there was a thick layer of glass between us and this snake.  There was a pause in our host's sharing and then I heard, "She is gorgeous."  I turned to the gentleman on my right and said, "I never expected to hear that about a snake."  We exchanged some thoughts and I was reminded; we all see things differently, we have different mindsets, and beauty looks differently."

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for fostering this writing community.
