made friends with the fattest squirrel in the park. he's probably that fat from eating out of the kfc dumpster. that dumpster smells mighty fine. can squirrels eat chicken? or is that really close to cannibalism? i know squirrels aren't birds, but squirrels and pigeons hang out all the time, so it would be like eating your family member. kind of when humans eat monkeys, it's kind of gross, and a little bit too close to home. anyway, i was carrying a 6' wood plank with me and the squirrel wasn't even concerned. i gave him my hand to sniff and he wasn't too interested, so i offered him one finger and he gave it the gentlest nip ever. i had my finger in a squirrel's mouth, and i kind of liked it.
