Update from Chuck after "Fun with Reptiles"
Chuck: One week later: hives.
Adolfo: Holy! I just noticed the pic at the moment Chuck was getting the bite!! WOW!
Chuck: Scott takes excellent pictures. When the action gets heavy, he just keeps right on snapping. Thanks for capturing this, Scott! My first snakebite... hard to believe I didn't get one when I was a kid. But let this be a lesson to everyone -- you can live your dream.
Scott: OK, that one had me laughing like an idiot in my office this morning. Well said! I hope the hives settle down. Now that I think about it, you probably have sensitive skin like your sister.
Chuck: Are you kidding me?!? I hope it leaves a scar. That would be so cool!
"What's that mark on your hand?"
"Oh my god! How did that happen?"
When it comes down to it, I want to be Liev Schreiber.
Scott (to Becky): Your brother is hilarious.
Becky: Chuck - I am sure that you could aid in the scarring process by rubbing the hives briskly with salt and hot pepper sauce. Although that is just off the top of my head - you could find more effective assistance online I don't doubt.....
Chuck: Ah, but that wouldn't be >authentic<. Much better if I just scratch it like crazy with dirty fingernails and hope for the best. And I have a better answer than "happens" [and the line should be wheezed like Clint Eastwood]:
"I got careless."
