Snake! okay, i wasn't really

Snake! okay, i wasn't really scared since the snake was barely longer than my hand and not even as thick as a pencil. i saw it yesterday while i was digging up the rain lily. at first glance i thought it was a skink, but when i looked more closely it was definitely a snake.

my best guess is the texas brown snake (storeria dekayi texana). darin's reaction upon being told i saw a snake in the backyard - "cool" - even before asking how big it was.
