Is there anybody in the United States who is having more fun right now than Mike Huckabee? He gets to go around the country playing his bass, answering questions with alarming honesty, and surprising everyone by winning primaries. Yesterday, he went on Meet the Press and told about frying squirrel in a popcorn popper in his college dorm--who wouldn't want to tell that story on nationwide TV?
I actually remember eating fried squirrel as a young girl in Mississippi after my father had, shall we say--harvested some bushy-tailed protein. My children often look at me askance when I say something such as, "I kept my squirrel tail collection in a cigar box on the bookshelf in my room, I wonder where it is today?"
There are lots of things from my childhood that I don't recognize as unique until they pop out of my mouth and people stare, nod knowingly, and say, "That explains alot."
