Story of wife's glory (longish)

Having just discovered this new forum I feel compelled to share a story of Whitey and give public credit to my wife who generally "accepts" my hobby more passively but took action this time and saved the day.
Whitey was a normal corn who hatched with particularly light background colors, almost Miami phase; and from day one he was trouble. He wouldn't eat and he would escape at every opportunity despite our best efforts.
At one point, he had dissappeared for nearly a week, and we had given up hope of finding him. Working late at work one night I got a frantic call from my wife. She had found whitey! But she didn't know how to catch him.
It seems whitey had holed himself up in a rather unique location. Where the pipes of our kitchen sink go into the wall, they make a rather ugly hole in the ceramic which is covered over by a chrome shield. While doing the dishes, my wife started the hot water and suddenly noticed Whitey's head sticking out from behind the shield. When she shut off the water, Whitey retreated into the wall.
Over the phone I coached my wife as she turned the water on and off coaxing whitey out from behind the wall. Then a short chase enused around the spice rack, and she got him!
I got to work late, and come home to a full snake tank.
Cheers to my better half!
