Ellie had a soccer game last night that ended right around dusk. As all the parents and children were folding up chairs, saying goodbyes and heading towards their cars we all stopped at a movement running across the soccer field. It was a SKUNK and it was CHARGING. I have never seen a mass of people move so fast and buckle in so quickly. Chairs were thrown in the backs of cars, children were screaming about a skunk and fathers who were other wise very manly were rushing to get into the cars as well. The whole event only took minutes but I could not stop laughing at the absurdity of this one little black and white animal and how much control it had over dozens of people. I don't even think an Elephant could of cleared a soccer field as fast as this little skunk. The last we saw of it, it was headed towards to port-a-pottys.
