Stupid ball python

A few days after a meal, I might give my snakes a warm bath if they hadn't defecated. My female ball python needs this done occasionally. One day, I was giving her a bath. The phone rang. My wife answered it, then yelled for me. I told her to come up here and take care of Coils, the ball python, as I talk to whoever is on the phone. Anyway, after the phone conversation, my sweetie calls/screams at me to come up to the bathroom. She took Coils out of the tub and onto the counter. Coils saw her reflection in the mirror and apparently didn't like it. Maybe she thought it was another snake. She's female too. Maybe she thought she was too fat. Anyway, poor Coils struck at the reflection in the mirror, which cracked the mirror. My wife thought this was either funny or very scary. Fortunately, Coils was fine. No cuts or bleeds. Now, every time I go by a mirror with Coils, she starts hissing. She must really dislike her looks.
