The doctor writes a diary recollecting his experience in the room with the snake and how he felt. Imagine you are the doctor.  Now write a diary entry.

August 21, 2020

8 P.m.

First, I thank God for saving me and giving me new life. I thought I would literally die today because the snake was barely four inches from my face. What a terrible experience! If God had not saved my life, my whole dream would have remained unfulfilled. 

I never dreamed of crawling a snake on my shoulder and sitting on my lap. My hands and legs had turned to ice and I was to ice and I was freezing cold without knowing what to do. 

I will never go back to this place to live there again. I will immediately look for a new place to live. I will wake up early tomorrow and start doing the task.

Dilnawaz.
