Yes, I said it.
Why is it that small, furry creatures wait until a car is coming before they try to cross the road?
A squirrel, for instance, will sit by the side of the road happily chewing on an acorn until it sees a car coming. At that time it will lower the acorn, look at the car, look across the road, and when the car is close enough it will pounce out in leaps and bounds. Invariably, halfway across the road it will start to second-guess itself. It will then dart back and forth across the middle of the road until it either decides to go all the way across, or sprint back for it’s starting place, barely missing your front tire.
Stupid squirrels. That’s why monkeys are better.
We won’t talk about another animal favorite of mine…the frog…
