A Question I Have Never Been Asked!

Submitted by Emma, age 10

Has Frankie ever been a skunk for Halloween?

Well, dog-gone, this is a first! I have never been asked if I was a skunk? I can be quite the little stinker now and then, but no, never have dressed up like a skunk. Might be kind of fun though. Do you think kids would say, P.U. to me? I suppose only if I sprayed, huh? And since I'm really not a skunk, even though I'd be dressed as one, I couldn't really spray anyways.
It would be fun to have a white stripe down my back. Maybe my mom can paint one down the middle of my back. That would be funny! I could scare my papa!
Oh no, I'm getting quite devious with this question, so I better sign off and go take a nap!

Dear Frankie...the grade 3's are wondering if you have ever chased a skunk? If so, did your mom get made when you caught it?

Oh dear. No, I have never chased a skunk. I can't say I have ever seen one either... thank goodness. I do believe my mom would be a tad upset if I got sprayed by one. PU, would I stink!
