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.
IF YOU’RE A CHIPMUNK, YOU DON’T KNOW FEAR…AND YOU NEVER GIVE UP…
LOOKS LIKE THE CHIPMUNK LOST, DOESN’T IT??
THINK AGAIN, MY FRIEND, THINK AGAIN…
WELL…ONCE IN AWHILE YOU HAVE A DAY IN THE WOODS WHERE EVERYBODY IS ON EDGE…FLYING TOO CLOSE TO EACH OTHER…DIVE BOMBING AND USING INTIMIDATION TACTICS.
WHEN THIS KIND OF DAY STARTS TO UNFOLD YOU JUST HOPE THAT NOBODY GETS HURT AND THAT THINGS DON’T GO TOO FAR.
LIKE THIS…THIS IS GOING TOO FAR.
LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT BE TIME TO TAKE A CHOCOLATE BREAK, SHAKE HANDS AND MAKE UP.
SOME CHIPMUNKS LIVE IN LUXURY APARTMENTS…LIKE THIS LITTLE ONE.
THIS IS A LUXURY APARTMENT BECAUSE IT HAS A BALCONY!
THERE IS NO ELECTRIC BILL TO PAY, WHICH IS A MAJOR ADVANTAGE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT DOES NOT COME FURNISHED, OR WITH A REFRIGERATOR.
YOU CAN PAY EXTRA TO HAVE A WASHER AND DRYER, BUT IF YOU WANT TO HAVE THAT UPGRADE YOU SHOULD ACT NOW…
IT’S GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO FIND SOMEONE WILLING TO WASH AND DRY A CHIPMUNK.
SO…IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY AT WHERE THE ARROW IS…YOU’LL SEE A CHIPMUNK DIVING FOR THE EDGE OF THE BIRD BATH. THEN ON THE RIGHT HIGHER UP, WE HAVE A BIRD HEADING FOR THE HILLS ..AND OF COURSE, ON THE LEFT WE HAVE A SQUIRREL IN THE ACT OF LAUNCHING HIMSELF BACKWARDS OFF OF THE BIRD BATH . MAYBE ONE OF THE PEANUTS EXPLODED.
