Opossums are Cool

I think opossums are cool animals and they are often judged to harshly.

Opossums are marsupials, which makes them a unique animal in North America.

They are omnivores and prefer to forge for food, so they make great clean up crews.

They have a powerful immune system.  They are even immune to snake venom.  You have to admit, that’s a seriously strong immune system.

They prefer a solitary lifestyle and are nocturnal, which makes them a bit introverted.  I’m an introvert too, so I can relate.

When a opossum is threatened it goes into a shock like state and actually faints.  This is an involuntary response, which kind of makes me feel sorry for the opossum.  If I fainted every time I got scared, that would be embarrassing.


Accidentally Married by Victorine Lieske


I almost didn’t buy this book, because I thought it was a romance novel.  I am not a fan of romance novels, but the name intrigued me.  I decide to give it a try and I am really glad that I did.

The book is about a CEO of a local company that hires a woman to pretend to be his girlfriend, so his family would stop commenting on his lack of a love life.  Though a series of weird circumstances.  They accidentally get married.  However, throughout the story they start to get to know each other and fall in love.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  It was funny and heart warming at the same time.
