Have you ever owned a boa?
Cue the cheerful music. When I hear the word I think of fluffy pink feathers or fabric. It’s party time. Be silly. Show off a dance move or sing a tune.
Oh — wait — Did you mean the other boa?
I’m not as fond of them. They don’t bring images of party games to mind.
My dictionary defines them as “a large snake that crushes its prey in its coils.”
Don’t try this at home — unless you are an expert with reptiles.
