So here is my rant:
It's a beautiful day today. Not a cloud in the sky, the temperature is in the mid 70s, the leaves are falling, a soft breeze is blowing. I had
to drive the spouse to the airport 2 hours away, not a bad drive because I take country highways instead of the Interstate.
We decide to ride with the car windows down so that we can enjoy the beautiful weather on the drive. Out of nowhere comes this horrible stench!
We quickly roll up the windows and what do we see? Dead skunk in the middle of the road! Fine, we get a way down the highway and roll the windows back
down- then it hits us again- then again and again! We must have passed at least 20 dead skunks during a 2 hour drive.
Is it "Hit the skunk for points" season? Do skunks pick a certain time of year to commit vehicular suicide en masse? Such a beautiful day and
had to keep the windows rolled up for the rest of the trip to the airport and I had to keep them rolled up for the 2 hour drive back home. The whole
situation just reeks!
At least I can have the windows open now at home, but trust me- I will never forget the record number of dead skunk "smellings" in one trip. Here
is a tribute to those skunks who have fallen for your entertainment:
