Adventures With Squirrels Vol. Two

I can’t believe I didn’t get a photo of this. I can only blame it on the fact that I was in the middle of watching the Big Lebowski and I was in a very Dude like state. At any rate I’m just at the scene where Jesus is explaining what he’ll do if a piece gets pulled on him in the semi-finals when I hear a banging on my door. It was a neighbor with a big smile on his face. I should say that today for some reason my car decided that the window will no longer roll up for no particular reason. I think the electric window somehow got off track and now it only rolls up about half way. So my neighbor tells me that a squirrel had just jumped into my car. Argh, I’m destroyed that I didn’t get a photo of this, it was insane. So a squirrel immediately pounced on this opportunity and jumped in the window. The squirrels and I have officially been int a state of war for over five years now so I shouldn’t have been so surprised.

A quick aside, this is another reason our neighborhood is so cool. A squirrel had attacked my car and was running around for not more than 30 seconds when my neighbor noticed it and knocked on my door. That is phenomenal.

So back to the story, sure enough there was a squirrel doing laps around the interior of my car. My neighbor was laughing and I was cursing…and laughing. I mean this squirrel was psycho. It knew what it was doing. It wasn’t even looking for a window to escape from it was just running in circles taunting me. So I open one door and I’m pretty sure at this point I heard the squirrel laugh at me. It just ran to the other side. So I open the passenger door and after exchanging some harsh words, the squirrel finally left. But he didn’t run. He kind of sauntered off, knowing he had won the battle.

So then my awesome neighbor spends about 20 minutes with me trying to help me fix the window. We were unsuccessful but my neighbor’s kindness reminded me of what I love best about living here…despite an unprovoked attack from the gray menace boys.
