The Raccoon Came Back - Sort Of

Now it's really broken.
"Where did the raccoon go?"
"What raccoon?"
"The one in the garden shed."
"The broken one."
"The one the squirrels were nesting in. Where is it?"
"I threw it out."
"Why would you do that?"
"Because it was broken."
"But the squirrels were living in it."

I'm sure you can guess who the city girl raised on Disney movies is in this conversation and who is the Nova Scotia country boy. 

"It's in a big pile out back that I'm going to burn in the fall."
"So you can bring the raccoon back?"
"Yeah, I can bring the raccoon back."

The broken garden ornament in the shed was a perfect nest for squirrels.
