I saw this cartoon online today and I laughed -- and then I laughed and laughed and laughed some more. If you've followed any of my squirrel stories, you'll understand why I find it so funny. My squirrels are so spoiled. If I don't get the seeds out early enough, they start body slamming the French doors in the bedroom. They only eat sunflowers seeds. And they can't just be regular sunflower seeds. They have to be the black-oil sunflower seeds. I understand that with the tiny birds because those are easier to open, but I don't get why the squirrels have to have them as well. I've tried regular sunflower seeds and they wouldn't touch them.
This cartoon struck me so funny because about a week ago Rick bought a big bag of unsalted peanuts. He usually rags on me about feeding all the wildlife, so I was surprised he wanted to get these for the squirrels. I told him I didn't think they'd eat them. Sure as hell -- wouldn't touch the things. I even broke a couple open for them so the nuts were exposed. Nope -- not even a nibble. Crazy little boogers. That's why this cartoon made me laugh so hard this morning. That's how I'm going to look in a few more years and I'm sure the squirrels are going to get meaner and more demanding. God help us all.
