My Dad had this run in with a possum once. We were standing around talking to this neighbor guy who was showing off his new truck. I was sweeping off our driveway because my Dad was making me sweep off the driveway. I thought it was stupid to sweep a driveway. I guess my Dad was teaching me something about sweeping off a driveway or something.
My Dad and our neighbor guy were standing around talking. I was sweeping away when this possum scraped up the side of the hill.
My Dad told me, “Take that damn broom and go knock that possum over the hill. Knock the shit out of him.”
“Take that damn broom and go knock that possum over the damn hill,” he said.
