So in our area of Florida this animal would be considered a “critter.” He is an armadillo. I was taking the recycling out and there he was. That little guy walked right up to me so close that I kept stepping backwards. I have never had an armadillo come right up to me before. He was so…bizarre looking. I have to tell you I found nothing cute or adorable about him which is a rarity for me! But he did have a winning personality so he gets points for that!!! He lost a few points there at the end because he smelled positively foul. Now I will know that particular smell if I come across it again!He actually gets extra points for being the highlight of my day though. It was not a pleasant day. It was one of those worrisome, negative thought, negative emotion, gloom and doom days. But he made me smile so he gets a gold star.
