    Subject: Possum or me
    Date: Wed, 4 Sep 2002

    Dear Alex,
    I just moved the garbage and there was a possum.

    I am still shaking. I am in the house and the possum is curled
    up under the bag of garbage. I am not taking or moving the
    garbage for now. When Dad comes home he can deal with it.

    Do you realize how big possum teethe are?
