My morning...

Post by osigwo on 5/31/2016, 8:40 am

A Mothers morning is always a hectic one. This Mother must wake up 3 kids at different times, get them fed, lunches packed and out the door every school day. But this day had the added bonus of a trapped skunk. So this skunk has been trying to dig its way out, tearing up grass and dirt…somehow knowing that a very excited teenager is waiting with her rifle. I rush to pack the first lunch and look for the missing brush that is missing EVERY morning, Coax the child to take her medicine and hope it works and get the first kid on the bus. It’s almost shooting time. I know I will be getting the dirty work on this job. But before the fun begins, I must wake up the next child, convince him he is not sick and must go to school, tackle the questions of “where’s my shirt?” and “What’s wrong with these shorts?” and “Where did the brush go?” and “Feel my head, Do I have a fever?”

Finally it’s shooting time. We gather around the window and watch as our shooter fires away. I see the skunk’s tail arch and know that “cleanup” will be extra fun. I know from past experiences that it’s important to get the furry little body far away as fast as possible. So I rush out with my lavender scented garbage bag and grab the trap with one hand and hold my shirt over my nose with the other. I run on my swollen ankle and cracking back to the dirt road across the street, trying to avoid the mystery drips from the skunk and the very excited dog jumping at my stinky treat. I silently pray that none of the BMW SUV driving soccer moms see my white trash moment. I use the trash bag to open the little door and dump my load. My fingers hit a sticky spot from the traps previous tenet. With a flop and thump, the little guy is free my unfortunately for me…not the spray soaked dirt and grass. So with one hand trying to block the smell, I try to keep the trap open and kick free all the goodies and walk home to hose out the bloody trap and make another lunch. I am foul. I just want to take a shower but I still have 2 kids left. I make the last of the lunches and listen to the complaints about breakfast….”It tastes sugar free and gluten free”…the worst insult any food can have. I complain about my smell. Our happy shooter heads off to school and our little one waits…inside… for the bus…He tells me “I told you to be careful mommy.” and happily runs and hops on the bus. I finally get my shower and throw my contaminated clothing outside. I get to sit for a moment…quietly alone on the couch looking out the window…with skunk stink not so slowly seeping into my house and realize….Its only 7:30…my day has just begun.

Man thats rough. Last time I had to deal with a skunk I ended up having the sucker end up in a live trap I set for a raccoon. That didn't end well either, got sprayed a few times trying to set him free.
