Yesterday I was driving east on Oak and noted a squirrel sitting on its haunches in the street. It was in the other lane, about 2 feet from the curb. I thought, "Dude, get out of the street!" It just sat there, frozen. There was no one coming in that lane, but as I approached, I slowed down, because you never really know what a squirrel's going to do in that situation. Then I realized he had a GIANT acorn clutched in his paws. It was bigger than his head.
I imagined him, dazed with joy and abundance, and trying to figure out where to take this awesome prize so that the other squirrels couldn't see it. After I passed, I looked back, and he was still there. I hope he woke up in time. Sometimes I get so fixated on one thing (good or bad!), I forget to get out of the way of traffic!
What is your giant acorn?
