Last night I almost hit one. He had ventured into the street from his home in the trees. Huge oaks and maple trees and scads of pine trees all of which surround a massive golf course. Why would a squirrel want to venture onto the pavement from a Garden of Eden squirrel habitat?
I blasted my horn hoping to shake him up and send him back to safety. Did he even hear the horn? Does he not feel the cruel hard pavement and know that it is safer to stay in the woods?
What are you thinking you dumb shit squirrel, a little game of traffic daredevil?
Anywho… happy DC squirrel week
