There is nothing like enjoying good food and conversation with two favorite people on a sunny March afternoon overlooking the golf course. Our chatter touched on many topics with the most memorable for me beginning something like this…
“My husband is so excited to see the tees ready so early in the year.”
“What would you have done had a crocodile wandered onto that course in Florida to snatch up your golf ball?”
“Can you believe people make a living out of hunting crocodiles in Florida?”
“Do you think crocodile tastes like chicken?”
“Well, they say if you cooked and served rattlesnake to an unwitting person, they would swear they were eating chicken.”
Now, I do not know how true it is about snake tasting like chicken, but my mind slithered from that possible deception to the story in Genesis of Adam and Eve, who were taken in by the master deceiver (John 8:44) dressed in snake skin and will eventually be sliced, diced and thrown into his own fiery trap. (Revelation 12:9-11, Revelation 20:10)
And, no one will care if he tastes like chicken.
