Since I’m avoiding humans (per social distancing guidelines) I’ve begun chatting with the local wildlife. Met a squirrel the other day, our conversation went something like this:
Me: Hey, Squirrel. What’s up with you?
Squirrel: Nuthin’, just hanging out. I’m bored.
Me: There’s a lot of that going around. This stay at home stuff is driving people nuts.
Squirrel: Nuts?! You haf nuts? Gimme des nuts!
Me (backing away slowly): No, no. Not edible nuts, it was a figure of speech…
Lesson learned. Hey, I didn’t promise it would be scintillating.
