I do, however, have a story about a dead raccoon.
See, it's an ongoing inside joke to me that raccoons really don't exist. It's almost as if it's an ongoing joke in the world - people around me will say "Look, a raccoon!" I'll fwip my head around to see... nothing. "It was just there! It ran in the bushes," they would reply. This has happened many, MANY times. Sure, I've seen videos of them, and pictures of them, but I've seen videos of Big Bird and pictures of jackalopes, too!!!
Walking home from work one day, I came across a dead raccoon in the bushes. I stood there and stared at it in fascination for a moment. First thought? "Dang, those things are HUGE." I also felt a bit of sadness, too.
I realized later that, to me, it was almost like finding a dead unicorn.
