I got out of my PChem final this morning and found Caitlin waiting for me. “How are you doing this morning?” I asked. “I fed the squirrels!” she proudly replied. I saw a couple scratches on her cheek and jokingly asked “Did the squirrels scratch your face?”
Oops. Yes they did.
Apparently she was feeding a runty squirrel when a big mean fat squirrel decided that it deserved the food more than the itty bitty one. So it gave the little one a smack and hit it hard enough to knock it into her face, where it scrabbled around a little bit before escaping. Don’t feed the squirrels!
