To Peter, from M
Is this the kind of snake we saw

or is this?

I think it is this one, because it's greenish and has nut* eyes, like Ms. Amy said.
PS - Oh man! I forgot to give Peter and Lucy the homemade walkie talkies we made this morning!
* He definitely said "nut eyes."  Oh, I tried to change his mind about that word.  Do you mean brown eyes?  No, he said.  Nut eyes.  Do you think she said round eyes?  No.  Ms. Amy said nut eyes.  Resignedly, I wrote "nut eyes", followed up by an email to Ms. Amy.

Hey Amy,
Also, I am wondering what got lost in the translation about the snake's eyes? "Nut eyes" I know can't be what you said, can it?

Hi A,
M's closer than you'd think about the "nut eyes." Venomous snakes have almond-shaped pupils; regular snakes have round pupils. Of course, if you get close enough to a snake to see his pupils, you'd better hope they're round.

It's the first snake. Because it is thin. How you make the walkie talkies? You can come over for a playdate someday? I love you.
