This morning, I woke up to find this in my yard.
As a result of the Central Texas fires, the drought, and the general Old Testamenteque vibe around here, we are being overtaken by animals. Foxes, possums, racoons, skunks…and allegedly, snakes. They’re thirsty, they’re hungry, and they’re everywhere.
So here’s the thing. 1.) I’m a city person at heart, and I’m not all that into wild animals. 2.) This is mainly because I’m terrified of wild animals. 3.) I’m still experiencing PTSD from my last close-up encounter with wild animals 4.) I’m especially petrified/terrified/traumatized by snakes, and so for all of these reasons and more, 5.) I’m currently and completely scared of the outside.
I’ve seen at least one crazy lunatic fox in my yard every day for at least a week.
At night, you can hear legions of these animals out and about…partying…having raves under the house, on the front porch…date raping, attacking and/or killing each other, etc.
I’m having a hard time with all this behavior.
