Here’s one for my to-do list — I need to learn the flute, call upon my Irish heritage, and then lead all the skunks out of Roanoke, in the same manner as St. Patrick led the snakes out of Ireland. (He used a flute, right? And is this basically the same story as the Pied Piper? Is one derived from the other?)
Dear God, the smell of those skunks is categorically toxic. It is quite possibly the only downside of living here. That odor is one problem that my native New York does not have. Hell, I’m willing to bet even New Jersey doesn’t have it.
