Comic-Drama About A Possum

Here's my ill-tempered invitation for you to read
a longer short story, somewhat comic, somewhat not, in
a short story blog for all the Lost And Found
of this real and fictional world.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: "Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.

In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms." — Stephen Jay Gould
