I got home around 11:15 tonight and ran the last bag of garbage out to the curb. As I was coming back, one of my neighbours (and fellow board member) was coming down the parking lot and as I passed him he said, "Oh, thanks Brock. I saw you going out there and figured I'd wait to see how it went."
"How it went? What do you mean?"
"Oh, there was a skunk out behind your house a few minutes ago. I just wanted to make sure you didn't run into it out at the garbage pad."
Thanks, buddy. You couldn't have mentioned this BEFORE I wandered out to Pepe LePew's all-you-can-eat buffet? Sigh.
