The hesitant herpetologist

At a youth planning meeting last night I had the following exchange with Emma, who was suggesting ways of persuading people to grasp our vision.

Emma: "You probably think I'm being manipulative..."

Me: "No, I think you're being wise... like a serpent." (Spot the Bible reference!)

Emma: "Are you calling me a serpent?"

Me: "Well, you know what they say - if the boot fits... well, then you're probably not a serpent."

Hmm, should have thought that last bit through really.
