I'm covered in tiny talking insects, you're funny JimRob...<P>------------------
If I shot you and your dead body falls on me and breaks my neck, have I committed suicide?

I was wondering when that issue would surface in Sybil and Alan's relationship. Mind you, I wouldn't imagine a skunk would be too fussy about... No. I'm sorry. That was speciest. Forgive me. I never said it. Gotta go, left the cat on the stove. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">

Tsk.<P>Don't worry about it. Alex is a good deal more concerned with hygiene than precedence would claim. (And than Sybil, if we're honest.)<P>I do think the skunk's reputation for smell is rather unfair, though; as far as I know they cause no more stink than any other mammal unless angered. Either that or people who keep them as pets have remarkable endurance.<P>(From what I've read, in the slang of times past various other wild animals were symbols for smelling bad: pole-cat, badger, and - yep - fox. So Sybil and Alex are in roughly the same position.)<P>And I've known cats to be very happy atop Aga stoves. Since they're effectively always on, the casing warms up to a very feline-friendly temperature.<P>Oh, and congrats on your induction into the Illuminati, by the way <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>------------------
