The Old Lady & The Snake

One day, so the story goes, a lady was walking down the road when she came across an injured snake. The lady picked up the snake, brought it home, and nursed it back to health. Over time, the lady and the snake became the best of friends. One day, the lady was in her garden with the snake, when the snake lunged forward suddenly and bit her in the throat. As the lady lay dying, she looked bat the snake and said, “Why did you kill me? I was your friend! I took care of you!” The snake looked at her and said, “Lady, you knew I was a snake when you picked me up.”
