So truth is stranger than fiction.

The reason it smelled like skunk so strongly is that my dad got skunked on the way into the office to pick up a part. He went in and got it anyway, so the office stunk like that. He got skunked by helping Dan Mosle, the town park guy, catch the thing in a trash can since it had been hurt by a dog. Just as they were putting the lid on, the thing sprayed straight up in the air and it came down on my dad’s head.

I myself almost got a chance to experience the same thing twice today, once by a skunk I startled in broad daylight in the alley on my way to get lunch, and the other that was happily munching from my compost pile as I came home just a few minutes ago.
