snake in pool

Me... in the pool. I'm with a friend having a good time just muckin' around and what not. He lived in the bush, I hate snakes- and he was a pranker. Bad mix.

I vaguely see something hurl over me from above and hear a splash behind me and I just think nothing of it. I hear my friend gasp faintly and at this point he's out of the pool. Ok so at this point I'm suspicious. In my side vision I spot a dark brown shape thrash somewhat... I turn and glance at it momentarily to convince myself that (in my mind) it was my friend being a jerk.

"Haha man very funny- very inventive. Yeh, a toy snake in the pool. Not this time, man."

My friend didn't reply with his usual laughter so I slowly turned again with a frown on my nervous face. Lo and behold it was a REAL FREAKIN' SNAKE in the pool behind me! No joke. It was big, dark brown, angry and staring right at my wide eyes.

It came for me and I squeeled some embarrassing words of panic and leaped out of the pool just in time. It did some laps and left without me... phew.
