Pet peeve is a pretty strong word for something that is sort of neither here nor there. LOL I'll go with annoyed. I can't see getting that worked up over buzzard versus Turkey something or other. I always thought Possum was more about just cutting it short, as in Playing 'Possum. At least I can call the guy who is eating my cat food at night by the right name.

Oh, my gosh! I have been nicknaming opossums "possums" without realizing the mistake. It reminds me of people thinking that yams and sweet potatoes are the same thing when they're not! Yams are from South America, and sweet potatoes are from Africa. They are totally different species; sort of like possums and opossums.
