Oh yeah, facing my fears tonight! That’s right…I just walked past a big raccoon in the hospital courtyard… It turns out that it wasn’t mad or rabid and DID NOT ATTACK ME! Ok maybe it sounds like small beans but seriously it got my heart pumping. I saw it shuffle away from the door when I went to open it then I realized what it was and ducked back inside the glass door. The house supervisor and I checked him out as he did likewise. Just then the sprinklers turned on spraying him right in the face and he dodged behind a small tree. I showed him my hands and said, “Sorry dude, I didn’t do it.” I turned to the house supervisor and said, “do you think it’s safe? I’m going!” In my imagination he was waiting until my back was turned then he would jump and claw me, but no. I’m glad to report I walked as confidently as a second grader walks into a group of big third grade and fourth graders 😋 past the fierce masked little bugger and he did not scratch my eyes out.
