"Shed Pelt"

When I was a kid my first book I ever wrote was about a skink who wore a soda bottle cap for a hat (hence his name "Pep C. Skink"), and a recurring plot point was the shedding of his tail. Bookend that with the bear skinning scene in Midsommar, it makes a fertile focal point for a funny.

It also served as an encapsulation of the unusually high numbers of mosquitoes that plagued Interior residents this past season as an excerpted spot illustration.
