The air is cool, the leaves are starting to change, and fall, at least in mind if not on the calendar, is here.
The only thing I don't like about autumn is the acorns plopping from the tree every few minutes, banging against the house like war drums. The squirrels tend to gather outside my bedroom window, and they scream at each other as they fight for each acorn that falls. Yes, squirrels scream. They are mean and petty and will fight each other to the death over one little tiny nut. Last year, I saw a squirrel fall off of a tree limb as he lost his balance when another squirrel went after him. I swear to you, the other squirrel was laughing.
So when I was laying in bed today, listening to them chatter and fight, I got to thinking about blogging squirrels. You know, they crawl into their little cubbies in the tree, and sit at their little squirrel computers (they use a splitter to intercept my cable connection), and blog.
"leave my nuts alone"
I can't believe this shit. Every time I try to get some acorns to store, that bastard from the tree next door is right behind me. I think he's spying on me. I need to store as many nuts as possible because I hear that the crows from the yard across the street are planning a takeover of our tree. The lead squirrel put our danger threat at Level 2: Orange, and while I think he's overreacting, one can never be too sure. Those crows are sneaky, dangerous creatures. I'm going to gather as much food as a I can just to play it safe. I know that stupid squirrel that keeps going after my acorns thinks we should try to make peace with the crows, but he just doesn't realize how impossible that is. He is gonna be so sorry when we are under attack by the birds and I'm sitting here in my hole with enough food to get me through and all he has is that one acorn he stole from me. Dumb liberal.
