Friends, readers--I am thankful for Audience Participation Fridays. Keeping up with a blog is hard work, and as you may have noticed, I haven't exactly been up to the challenge this week. On Fridays, however, it becomes your problem rather than mine. A friend from high school has a "critter control" company that catches wild animals that end up in people's houses. I noticed on Facebook today that he had gotten five raccoons out of one house. And it got me to thinking..."There's an animal in the house!" is a whole subgenre of the amusing anecdote genre. I'm sure you have a story of a time a wild animal got into your house or the house of somebody you love. Why don't you take a moment and share it?
