there is a knock on the door
October 23, 2013
It is the balcony door and the balcony is several feet off the ground and also barricaded so not a normal entrance way.
I open the door.
It is the squirrel.
I think maybe I’m not ready to get quite this close to the squirrel so I close the door and give him some space.
The next time I open the balcony door, there is a ginormous acorn on the door step.
There are two ways to interpret this:
One: A ginormous acorn fell on the balcony and the squirrel was on his way to retrieve it when I rudely interrupted him by opening the door.
Two: The squirrel left me a present.
Who knew squirrels were so romantic?
PS: Because I know at least half the people out there — and probably more — think I am overly imaginative and make this stuff up to be whimsical, here is a photo of the ginormous acorn the squirrel left me as a present. (It is next to a lighter too for scale.)
