    Shit was crazy redonkulous.


    So I'm smoking a cigarette right outside my front door the other night, and had the porch light out, so it was pretty dark. My cat came back from around the corner of the house, and I was about to acknowledge it, when I said to myself "wait a minute...the dog and the CAT are inside the house....so WTF is this thing next to me right now". I pretty much blacked out on what happened next, but there may have been some screaming (according to neighbor, who later claimed to have heard a small girl screaming around that time) and pant shitting. I think the animal was scared too.

    I'm pretty sure that it was a Possum, but I'm not sure. :smile:

    Yeah, whatever the fuck that was looked more like the opossum variety, rather than the possum variety.

    Thing looked ugly as fuck.

    Thank god and baby jesus that I don't have the Rabies right now.

    I was only wearing socks.


    Am I being clear enough that this wild creature walked right up to me. I COULD have kicked it, hard, it was so close to me.

    I got opossums in my neighborhood as well as skunks. Walking up on a skunk will freeze you in your tracks.

    Whatever it was you are lucky it didn't bite you. There's something wrong with a wild animal that walks up to a human .
