Squirrelly, Missoula, Montana

The sight of these giant squirrels set me to stirring up a justifiably indignant pot of squirrel hatred. Obviously, such a dish must be shared, so I sent the pic to our kid, with the text, “Creepy - Giant squirrels!”. She texted back, “Those are kangaroos”. Oh. What else to say but, Turn off the burner, Dinah, and get out of the kitchen!
And isn’t that often how it goes - we get all worked up about something, only to find we’ve misinterpreted the “tail”. This is where living AND learning is a good thing to embrace.
(To review why my ire ignites so readily against the bushy-tailed rodents, check out this earlier post.)
