Shower surprise: Snake drops in

LEWISTON - Here's your hygiene tip of the day: If you want to get in and out of the shower as quickly as possible, try going nose-to-nose with a ball python while you're lathering up. It happened to Khadija Bile Thursday afternoon at her Maple Street apartment. Bile was halfway through her shower at about 5 p.m., when the 3-foot serpent crawled from a ceiling tile above her. For a moment, snake and woman regarded each other in the steam and spray. "It was just hanging there, right in front of my face," Bile said. "I was shocked. Then I ran out of the bathroom and toward the door. I was naked, but I didn't know what to do."
