I took an ad out in the local weekly paper yesterday. It read:
"HELP HELP HELP! The King Kong of skunks is terrorizing our neighborhood. Small children and dogs are trapped inside. Please call quickly! HELP!"
My hero called tonight. His name is Ted and he will arrive tomorrow in a red Ford Ranger with a live-trap for the King of Kongs.
He will set the trap and I am supposed to call him when his royal Kingness is trapped inside. Then I pay him twenty bucks and he takes away the King.
And then let's hope that peace will reign in my little kingdom again.
