You Got Red On You

I almost had heart failure about 10 minutes ago. I had been laying in bed watching a movie and when it was over, I got up to take it out of the player. Something out the window caught my eye so I turned my head to see what it was only to find I was being stared at.

I live on the second floor of the building. There's no ground to stand on just outside my window; I shouldn't be seeing a body when looking straight out of it yet there I was, staring into the eyes of a peeping tom.

I started, my heart went straight into my throat and I lost the ability to breathe. I recovered myself, leaped to my desk to grab my camera and snapped a shot of the culprit.

Here he is:


That little bastard scared the shit out of me. He didn't seem to be in any hurry to move either. When I first saw him he was directly outside my window, sitting on that large cable you see. This photo was my second attempt as the previous one I took with the window closed and it turned out terribly. As I opened the window he turned around and walked about two feet before stopping and turning around to stare at me some more. Honestly? I think he was enjoying the movie with me. He should have spoken up, maybe I would have shared my popcorn with him.

And for those who will ask what movie I was watching: Shaun of the Dead

That would have scared the everlivin' shit out of me! I'm having palpitations just thinking about it!

Awww, he's a cute little bugger! Sounds like he liked the movie to.

Weird! Looks cute though - a bit like a possum.We have possums, which is the nearest thing to this fella.

It is an opossum. I'm not scared of them, I'm just not keen on having one stare at me through my window and making me think it was a floating head at first glance.
