I'm sick of work. Especially this week. I'm one of the few people here. It's quiet & boring. Not to mention that my email buddy, Wendy, is at home recovering from her C-section. Bummer. I knew I was going to be without her for awhile but when her hubby texted me that she'd had a section my first thought was "well crap, that's 2 MORE weeks of no email"! He'd already told me that mom & baby were doing good. I'm not that awful!
My friend Allison has a freakishly odd aversion to raccoons. They're not my favorite animal by any means but while I think they're kinda cute with their little masked faces (of course I haven't found them rummaging in my trash), Allison is petrified of them & thinks they're awful! As luck would have it, she's had several incidents with them. I'm still confused as to how many have been caught in the trap they had. The confusion is due to a Houdini raccoon. Yes, that's right, he/she (because let's face it, nobody is getting close enough to figure it out) has been caught & escaped multiple times!!! I bring all this up because of a conversation Allison & I had today. She's doing Weight Watchers & while looking up points on something she came across this tidbit of info:
Raccoon, cooked, 1oz........2pts
Yep, you read that right. Of course Allison completely flipped out. What's really strange about all this is I was reading a blog I follow http://randcgraves.blogspot.com/ & I sent it to Allison so she could see that she isn't the only one with raccoon problems. It was after reading this that she found the Weight Watchers info. I know there are people out there that eat raccoons (I think it's a southern thing) but I never thought it would be included in the Weight Watchers program! I'll leave you with this quote from Allison, "Now, if we find out that eating it will actually burn fat and calories and make you lose weight, we'll talk".
