I can control opossums. With my mind.

With my mind, people.

My mind.

Incidentally, since I can’t decide whether to use “possum” or “opossum” I’ve decided to go with o/possum from now on. The o/possums will understand.

I don’t know how useful this ability will be, but I like the idea of it, even though o/possums weird me out.

Damn. Now the o/possums know they weird me out. Shhhhh!

Although I don’t really believe I almost burned down Gatorland with my mind, as I have previously suggested, I choose to believe I’ve got this o/possum thing locked down.

I’m going to be sad if it’s the only X-man power I ever develop, though.

So what proof do I have of this ability? I’ll admit it’s a maybe possibly a little bit sketchy…

Dana was one of the winners of my inadvertently o/possum-themed blogiversary give-away. Yesterday, I decided to drop her prize off at her house, which is less than 1/2 a mile from mine – well within any rational person’s acceptable o/possum mind-control perimeter.

Before I arrived, one of her neighbors told her he’d seen an o/possum run into her yard. There is only one explanation (that is currently being posited here on my blog) – I sent this o/possum to her house!

I believe that I shall stop short of declaring myself the o/possum queen, because no good will come of that.

I’m also not going to be brushing their teeth anytime soon.

I forgot to take a picture of Dana’s present, but once all of the blogiversary presents have been received there will be some picture posting. Also, since I’ve decided that everyone who commented but didn’t win the drawing will be receiving a postcard I still need to send some emails and round up some addresses.

Sharing is caring!

You didn’t tell us this woman has her own website. “Proper Opossum Alien Art?” She’s off the charts nuts in all the best ways.
Also, can you use your mind control to send the o/possum to the other side of the neighborhood? To Drew’s house would be great!

Oh my heavens, I missed the art somehow! Or I saw it and repressed it.

Done. Although I’m not sure how the Dairy Godmother will feel about having them at her end of the neighborhood.

Ooooh, that reminds me that I need to go listen to those insect noises she asked about when it gets dark tonight or tomorrow…the week has just flown by.

Husband has doubts about my new-found power. Silly boy.

One of my friends in college was from France. And while she spoke English fluently, there were words that evaded her from time to time. Once, when we were walking to dinner, an o/possum ran across the road. Carole said “Look! It’s an . . . a . . . one of those animals you always see dead on the side of the road!”
