It’s another sign of spring. The smell of skunks in the air. They’ve been asleep in their dens, not exactly hibernating, but not exactly awake either. In my part of the country, their alarm goes off in March. They drink a cup of java, and sign up for eHarmony. You might see them on a date, but they’re shy. More likely you’ll catch a whiff of them while driving down a country road. Instead of thinking “eewwwww,” can you think, “ahhh?”
Just watch out for those oddball pairings, the Romeos and Juliets, the star-crossed lovers of the animal world. Because some guys see a pretty tail, and chase it, without a thought about what comes next. You know what comes next—heartbreak. You thought you knew him, didn’t you? Well, a lot of broken hearts find solace in the tub.
