Story Summary

When Rooster ducks into the barn to get out of the afternoon rain storm he is surprised to have his sneeze answered by a polite "God bless you, young man." When he realizes it is Miz Mephitis, the skunk, he backs away just a far as he can. But his fear is replaced by curiosity when a right friendly discussion ensues and Rooster learns there is a lot more to skunks than he had imagined.
