Dinner with a squirrel

I grabbed Wendy's tonight for dinner and instead of eating in the overcrowded dining room there or here--I had a nature picnic--and then HE showed up.

No not a bearded man with fragmented ideas and a questionable accent--no--a real squirrel. Squirrels are everywhere on the campus, and this one seemed to like me...or my food. He was searching for nuts...sticking his head down a hole, picking them up and licking or washing them (I couldn't really tell). He kept getting closer and closer I don't think he wanted a bite of my hamburger though, he is just a curious little squirrel.

It was a nice change of pace from sitting at a computer. It reminded me of how much I really like fall and little curious squirrels.

In Toronto, the squirrels are big, muscular, and black. They aren't particularly cute. I called them Grizzly Squirrels.
