Late last night I was leaving the gym and all of a sudden, WHAT THE H-E-double hockey stick (i was keeping that pg rated. we all know what i really said) blurted out of my mouth as I slammed on my breaks and threw my car in reverse. I could not believe my eyes! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a possum before, but never has a grown possum actually sat in front of me while eating his dinner and staring at me. My headlights, squealing tires, and camera flash did not scare this guy away. And by the looks of him I know why, he’s scary!
BUT do you know what’s not? This book. Which I totally forgot about until I almost ran over this guy. Can I say I’m happy that I almost ran him over? I’m not one to be cruel to animals, but if I hadn’t I would never have remembered this book. And it was a favorite of mine while growing up. My mom still has it on her bookshelf, completely taped up from all it’s use. I can’t wait to read it to my kids!
