    Which stores did you hit in PDX? I've been dying to take a trip down there myself to hit some of the pet and aquarium stores.

    When you are out of town/state for 10 days with NO phone reception or internet service (TRUE STORY), and when you can FINALLY call your wife you ask if the snakes are ok and if the large female boa has given birth yet: THEN you ask how the wife and son are.

    Your next door neighbors know you remove snakes, but are clueless that there is a small reptile zoo 15 feet from them (I own my home and all my snakes are legal to keep,but I know the neighbors sleep better at night being totally oblivious, lol)

    When you leave for a reptile expo 2 hours away, your dad tells you drive safe, your step-mom says NO MORE SNAKES!!!!

    ...and you sneak back in the next day with the biggest one yet.

    When you get the best grade you've EVER gotten on an in-class essay (I'm a good writer, but my mind locks up when I write in class for some reason. this one had no negative marks, just a perfect score and a "Zack, excellent essay!") and you know the reason is the essay was an analysis of a poem about a snake :)

    The poem is "Snake" by D. H. Lawrence by the way. I liked it, it tells about a man who sees a venomous snake and struggles with obeying his culture which expects him to kill it, while he is also fascinated with the beauty of it and just wants to watch it.

    Going to the store and buying groceries = $50
    Cooking dinner for family = 20 mins
    Spending 3 hours pre-making salad for your herps = priceless

    when pay day arrives and the first thing you think is "what can i buy my herp(s)!"

    When you drive 2.5 hours to reptile expos and your wife gives you a $50.00 spending allowance...and you try to mentally figure out which snake you can get for $42.50 or less so you can afford the animal AND the taxes.

    Your resume is looked upon as an oddity because no one can figure out what the heck Herpetolgy is and why anyone would have an interest in herps.

    When you walk into your house holding a box and both of your parents are standing there at the door asking what reptile your bought this time.

    When the people at the pet store ask how the animals are by name and automatically ask "Which type of worms this week?"

    The only reason you strike up conversation with someone is because they have herp related tattoo or article of clothing on.
