Wherein proprietorship of the author's apple is contested

You've heard of cow tipping? The inner city possum, running short on available cows, is honing her tipping prowess on the nearest available placental mammal. Didn't anyone ever tell you not to make passes at citoyennes in glasses?

Who won?

The possum. It almost got to the point where all four paws were hooked into my trouserleg. I have a bit of a weakness for big brown eyes and whiskers, exacerbated by years of beagle exposure.

I would have given in long before then. I have a soft spot for possums and they have very sharp claws.

I notice from the orientation of that picture that the squirrel has not only succeeded in pushing you over, but it appears to have pushed the entire world over. Yikes!

Are these the kind of social tendencies I am to expect on my holiday in Melbourne? Apparently I shall be residing in the recesses of the Yarra Valley b/w 14th & 18th June, making perhaps only one trip into the city!
Uni is grinding to a halt - at last - with only 2 essays left! so happy!

I know I'm probably a horrible person for saying this, but if an urban possum approached me like that I'd think of diseases and tetanus updates should those adorable little claws get into my skin.

My weakness is squirrels and squirrels only.

It's true, Tim: this was one ambitious possum. Not content with overthrowing my good self, she was bringing on the revolution.

Alex, Melbourne by day couldn't be more civil. It's when the sun goes down that the sabre-tooth possums come out to play.

Karen, I like squirrels as much as the next lady, but you do realise they can carry rabies, whereas the worst the Australian possum can give you is septicaemia?

Karen said...

I know about the squirrels and rabies and I know it's not rational and probably very unfair, but I'm afraid of possums (and also seagulls).

Thanks, Splatri. Twenty bucks at Broadway Kmart last December.

It's all together now with a rousing rendition of Give my knee-gards to Broadway...
