    Nearly skunked!

    I was walking back from the library to my on-campus housing, not paying too much attention to things in general, when my eyes happened to skim over a skunk not 15' from me! It had definitely noticed me! I high-tailed it off the sidewalk and had to go around the adjacent parking lot to avoid it. I stayed for a few minutes to warn a couple girls and a guy. The girls, smartly, walked a wide circle around the skunk, while the guy began to throw dirt clumps at it.
    I was this close [ ] to being nicknamed "skunk girl", "skunky", or anything else that these crazy college kids could come up with. Of course, then I would have to transfer schools because of the shame.

    There was a boy in my high school who threw rocks at a skunk. Totally got sprayed. He STANK for days. His poor parents, they tried everything. His mom made him sleep in a tent in the back yard for three days. I guess he learned his lesson. This is BTW the same bullie who threw rocks at me and my brother at the bus stop when we were in grade school. HA HA HA!! Kharma baby!!
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
