Opossums are extraordinarily stupid creatures. An opossum will walk into a wall keep moving it's legs for a bit. Once it figures out it's not getting anywhere, it will back up. And then it will proceed to move straight ahead again, right into the same wall. Yes, that about sums up my approach to life -- keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. On the plus side, 'possums are very adaptable and are distributed very widely in the Americas. They can survive in a pretty wide range of habitats -- from the deep woods to the big city -- and in a variety of climates.
But mostly they're just dumb as mud.
My blog appears to have ceased playing 'possum. Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 7/21/2003 11:20:00 PM
