Watch for falling squirrels


Not sure why this popped into my head at 4 a.m. I don't think about squirrels a great deal. That would be nuts.

Pause for lugubrious howl.

I do like the sentiment. After all, what does "An apple doesn't fall far from the tree" really tell you about a person. A squirrel is much more descriptive. And for the most part, most squirrels I've known (and not in the biblical sense) are well...pretty squirrelly. 

We don't see them that much in the house we live in now. In our old house they used to come to the patio door. I made the mistake of feeding them and they got real aggressive. One gnawed right through the screen on the sliding glass door. 

Squirrels are not patient animals. And you don't want them coming after your nuts.

Anyway, this is a t-shirt I would proudly wear. But I have to stop buying my own t-shirts because it gets pretty expensive even with the $2 or so kick back I get for coming up with the artwork.

I don't want you to get the impression that I am desperate for the money. I'm more desperate for the attention and validation that someone buying one of my t-shirts (or magnets, coffee cups, tote bags or stickers) would do for my bruised ego. I just want to go all Sally Fields and say in a weepy, whiny voice, "They like me, they really like me."

There's a t-shirt in there somewhere.
