We had a little visitor

I think opossums are cute --
I like their long hair and pink noses.
I like their slender bare fingers,
with thumbs on both hands and feet.

I even like their tails
and their little beady black eyes --
but I don't like their teeth.
After seeing them, I can see how people
get the creeps from opossums.

But I still think they're cute.

We only see our resident opossum in the winter months.
Isn't that interesting?

That is pretty cute. I've only ever seen them squished on the side of the road. I had to dodge them with my bike on my way home from school. Sad.
