Guess what I found in one of our garbage cans yesterday? Besides the disgusting water sitting in the bottom from all the rain.
Something small and furry. Something that is "almost" cute as a baby and then grows up to be a hideous creature with yellow teeth and a rat-like tail.
Pretending to be dead is not a myth.
This possum probably dropped down into the can from a tree, and then couldn't get out. I saw him all hunched in the corner and gently said, "awwww, hey there little guy!"
Then he turned his hideous face toward me and showed his horrid teeth and beady blue eyes, and I froze in terror before running for my life. Oh, the sickness! The revulsion!
I returned later with my strapping teenage son, who then proceeded to scare the living daylights out of me by hitting the can and saying "WATCH OUT" just as I peered in.
Girls, I screamed so loud and ran so fast I was like a bat out of you-know-where! I came to my senses on my hands and knees in the grass, yelling "I will kill you for this!" to that kid, who was doubled over in laughter.
"Mom! I've never heard you scream like that before!" he managed to say. "It's DISTURBING!"
Yeah, disturbing, alright. I'm disturbed that he thinks that was funny! If you've ever seen one of these things up close, you know you will be haunted by their evil visage forever. My scream was primal, honey. I don't even know where it came from.
Well, I am sorry for making you look into a disgusting trash can with a gross possum in it just before having a lovely coffee time with your nicer, classier friends. Perhaps they will entertain you with sweet stories of fine china and genteel dining, or Sunday strolls in beautiful parks.
Link up for a virtual cup of coffee with friends! Add a link to your blog (preferably a specific post)...the subject is up to you! Then try and visit as many blogs as you can and get to know some awesome Company Girls! Easy and fun.
