There was real fear in my eyes at the hotel I work at yesterday. Something came through the door that scared the bejeebers out of me. I guess I should mention the door was open. And in walked the scariest thing on earth. There was a skunk inside my lobby. You can chase a fox or a raccoon out the door. but skunk? No way. I've been sprayed by a skunk. It's no laughing matter. Fortunately, it went back outside and left. I closed the door, pronto.
The only wild animal, at least North American wild animal, that I fear is the skunk. Bears, wolves, snakes don't even concern me. But send a skunk after me and I am instantly in terror mode.
