brooklynwriter: (opossum)
In Brooklyn, yet. It was about 9 p.m. and I was just outside my front door, squatting next to some of the herbs I'm growing out there and checking them out. Out of the corner of my eye I saw an animal approaching, and assumed it was a cat (there are a lot of them in my neighborhood). Looked up, and it had a long, skinny snout that had never been seen on any cat.

I, of course, did the stupid thing. Instead of staying low and quiet so I could watch what the animal did, I jumped back and exclaimed, "Jesus Christ!" (Yes, I know. No, I don't know why that is in my inventory of exclamations.) The opossum took one look, probably thought the equivalent of "Who the hell is that!" and took off.

I'm really disappointed that (a) I didn't handle the situation any better, and (b) I didn't have a camera with me. Still -- an opossum!
