I am in the fortunate position of being able to commute by bicycle most days. Today I was riding on the bike path on my route home, and I came to a tree that was over hanging the path. There are always a bunch of squirrels running around under the tree, and usually they see you coming and run away. Today, one of them froze up when he saw me coming. He dodged left, then right, then stupidly, back left again.
I stopped to check him out, but he was just lying there.
I’m really sorry about that squirrel.
Mundane and pointless, but I still feel bad about it.
