Last year around this time, I was riding my bike to work when a squirrel fell out of a tree onto my front wheel. It sorta bounced off the tire and ran away. Two years ago, around this time, I was sitting outside on a friend's patio when a squirrel fell out of a tree right between our two lawn chairs. It too dusted itself off and ran away.
So what's up with squirrels and spring? Does it make them lose their shit and get all uncoordinated? I'm only asking because this morning on my walk to work a squirrel almost fell on my head. Do I need to invest in an anti-squirrel flak jacket? Is this happening because squirrels are chowing down on Easter candy and spazzing out? Seriously... this is weird.
