I'm almost 25, live 1000 miles away from my parents and they still have issues that my fiancÚ and I have snakes. Snakes just wig them out. My mother keeps saying that those who have snakes do it to boost a God-like complex; she thinks we get a power trip when we feed/watch our snakes eat live rats. (Please no comment on live food- we're in the process of switching to frozen.) I think she was watching too much Oprah or something.
Unfortunately parents are allowed to fight dirty by throwing in the comment "while you live under our roof...." Just be happy with the little friends that you've got. I think it's easier to appreciate what you have than be forced to get rid of an extra friend that you get quickly attached to. Good luck!
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...
How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?
