How Could I Forget!?


It's Groundpossum Day!

The famed groundpossum Trussville Terry emerged from under the multiple layers of blankets on his bed this morning at 5:30 CT, turned on the local news, propped up on his arm, watched the weather and traffic mini-updates, and then fell back to a fitful slumber before awakening himself again at 5:52 a.m. with a thunderous burst of flatulence.

Crowds gathered at the annual event held in this quiet Alabama suburb applauded briefly before clutching their noses and gagging.

Further distress was visited upon the onlookers when the groundpossum rolled off the edge of the bed at 5:57 a.m. and stood beside it, removed his sleeping attire, then proceeded to vigorously groom his stomach and chest hair with a hairbrush he had found nearby.

The groundpossum then went into the bathroom and closed the door.

Local lore indicates that his actions this morning predict six more weeks of blogging.
