This Really Happened

“I’m not really scared of a lot of things. I’m scared of possums. And I’m scared of raccoons sometimes, it depends on how big it is – I’m scared of the smaller raccoons because the bigger ones are slower.” Vince Staples

Last week, I needed to find something to do before I picked up my daughter from her trip with the school. So, I thought, I will just go to the Mission, and say a prayer for all my family, friends, and those that have touched my life.

I pulled out my phone, and I see a possum. I take a photo, and then..

He or she, saw me, and continued to come down the stairs to me. It was daylight, and all I could think about was “rabies”. A nocturnal animal that is out durning the day, and trying to interact with a human? I made a weird sound, then both of us took off in opposite directions

After I said my prayers, I saw it again as I was leaving. This time, it headed under the bushes. Spooked me out a little bit.
