“Mom!  Oh my god! Come here!” Zed yelled at me this morning.

I dashed from the bathroom, right eye half eyelined. All in a panic, I’m thinking What!? What!? As I approached, he yelled “There’s a dead something on the patio.”

“Lovely” I think. I’m almost afraid to look.

It was a ‘possum. And it wasn’t ‘playing possum’. It’s intestines peeking from it’s missing gut made that clear. And dammit, Nick had already left for work.

So, I gathered up my gumption, cursing and waving my hands at the dogs to move away from their special gift. Zed got a plastic bag and I grabbed the pooper scooper. It would double as a corpse grabber this morning.

Zed was laughing and grossing out. Tween curiosity and morbidity overtook him. He couldn’t wait to tell his friends. Elle just had a look of disgust on her face. “Gross” was all she would say, watching from the inside.

Nick is always complaining that the dogs don’t chase birds, squirrels or any other invaders to the yard. Finally, they took some action.

I certainly won’t let them be giving me doggy kisses anytime soon.

Ms. TSM has sent me some interview questions that I’ll have up soon. In the mean time, find out more about her.

P.S. Happy Birthday to my niece today…she’s 4.
