I thought I heard a little voice calling to me from outside, so I put down the sequins, (don’t ask) and went to investigate.
“Hello?” I called from the window.
“Hello.” The words came from a little chipmunk sitting in a clay pot. “If you wouldn’t mind, could you please fill this bowl? Birdseed would be good, but I have a hankering for a cheeseburger if you have one in your pocket.”
I always thought a conversation with an animal from the woods would be a lot more inspirational.
We’re actually having a winter this year…lucky for me because the deer have begun to pass closer to the house. They’re smelling the alluring scent of birdseed with a side of corn. I’ve actually considered building a drive thru window onto the house…then the deer can just come up to the window, place their order and leave happy. I would definitely add a happy meal toy to their bag of sunflower seeds or whatever it is they ordered, you want to keep your customers coming back.
Hmmmmm…this would mean that I would have to wear some kind of uniform when I worked at the window…I’d need to look professional after all. I’m thinking a pink tutu and the REALLY awesome cowgirl boots I bought in Montana. I know the deer wouldn’t see that part of my uniform but I could stick my leg out the window every now and then to show them my boots.
See you all later, I’m off to cut a hole in the side of the house for the ordering window and I need to get it done before hubby gets home.
