When I think I'm having a rough day, I just think about this little guy. As a squirrel, losing your tail just has to be the ultimate in bad days.
He still does the little angry-squirrel-tail-twitching thing, which reminds me of the way dogs with no tails wag their rumps when they're excited. But the squirrel is more ridiculous, and consequently more amusing.
I could write a whole spiel about how this little squirrel teaches us the importance of pressing on, even when tough times get you down. But you know, I don't think he's even noticed that he doesn't have a tail. So I'll spare you the inspirational pep talk, and wish you a blessed Wednesday!
