I'd already powered down for the evening, but had to log back on for this one.
Each night in my household we have a bedtime treat. Gigi must take an allergy pill each day ($29 per 15-day supply). Of course, its a heinous sized pill that she would never take willingly, so she receives it wrapped in a piece of deli sliced Oscar Mayer ham.
It's a nightly ritual. I call out, Who wants a treat? and they both come running. It took Cory a while to figure out how to eat the ham (?!), but she's a real pro now.
So tonight we are doing the deed. I'm wrapping her pill in a slice and they are both salivating at the smell.
When suddenly there was a thump on my back screen door (yes, the door was open). We all three turned to look.
I said, Oh shit!
Gigi charged the door barking.
Cory kept eating.
It was a skunk. Hitting on my screen door. Apparently, it wanted some ham too.
And man, do those suckers flip around fast to flash that tail.
Thank heavens I was faster at getting to the door.
Thank heavens the skunk ran away without leaving its scent.
And yes, I live in a well populated area of a major metropolitan city.
