Hey, look at that squirrel!
Thereâ€™s a squirrel on the lawn, and heâ€™s just sitting there. Heâ€™s not moving or anything. Maybe heâ€™s dead. Squirrels donâ€™t just sit on the lawn and not move. Oh, he moved his head. Heâ€™s alive. Whatâ€™s he doing there, just sitting there? Heâ€™s not even eating. Somethingâ€™s wrong. Maybe heâ€™s gorged himself on nuts and doesnâ€™t even want to move. Do squirrels do that? I know people do! Iâ€™m going to open the back door.
Hey squirrel! Get off my lawn!
Look, heâ€™s running away. He heard me. Heâ€™s off the lawn. I canâ€™t believe he understood me! I bet he used to be human. He must have been transformed into a squirrel by a spell or something. Heâ€™s going to hate me for making him move after that big meal.
Look at him. Heâ€™s smart. I told him to get off the lawn and he ran over to the tree. Look. Heâ€™s on the lowest part of the tree just sitting there. Heâ€™s only about an inch off the lawn. Stupid squirrel. Heâ€™s taunting me. Since when did squirrels start taking you literally? Maybe his mom told him not to climb trees less than a half hour after eating.
Iâ€™m going outside.
Hey squirrel. Hey. Why are you scrambling to the other side of the tree? Donâ€™t make me come over there. Thatâ€™s it. I can see you now. Hey! You can still climb trees! Howâ€™s that belly feeling, you glutton? Donâ€™t hid behind a tree limb. I can still see you! Iâ€™m coming under. Donâ€™t poop on me!
What? Whatâ€™s that, dear? Yes, Iâ€™ll help you load the car so we can go to your mother’sâ€¦
