Journal question for my juniors today: Would you rather bathe in a tub full of spiders or sleep in a cave full of snakes?
One student's response:
"I hate spiders just as much as this question... and I hate this question a lot. The answer, however, is obvious, since spiders are my worst fear. I would have to choose the snakes. I would challenge the king snake to a duel, and if I killed him then his snakepeople would have to obey my commands. I would obviously kill him with my bare hands then eat him for dinner. Then I could sleep peacefully."
