Did you ever hear the “red and yellow kill a fellow…red and black, poison lack,” method for solving the oh-so-common problem of differentiating between the venomous coral snake and his multiple lookalikes?

Well, that’s kind of how I feel in this outfit. Red, yellow, black…check.

And apparently I’m harmless because only red and my black are visibly touching. Of course, my shirt kind of makes it look like I already got bitten by a coral snake and have since broken out in a nasty rash, but I really can’t resist polka-dots of any kind, so if I must look a bit infected to get to wear fun new sheer dotty blouse, then so be it.

And despite the obvious usefulness of that nice little rhyme, I’ve got some even better advice for you if you suspect that you have encountered a reptile that might in any way impair your ability to—I don’t know—live, I have to two words for you: “RUN! Now.”

You can thank me later.
