Just Chillin'

So Bobby was leaving class one day...stressed, I'm sure...pondering the meaning of all things mouth, and tooth, and gums, and tartar and plaque. I'm sure microbiology and prosthedontics were floating around in there too, probably with a smattering of anxiety about the logistics of getting me moved to West Virginia. In general, I would probably say he had a lot on his mind, because let's face it--dental school is hard. Let alone piling on top of that all that goes with getting married, including merging households and learning to actually spend an extended period of time with the one that you love (the longest we've spent together is 5 days...I can't wait to have a relationship where we live in the same city!).

So, Bobby is walking along, minding his own business, when he comes across this:

A squirrel, in the midst of a siesta, hanging out in the sunshine, not a care in the world. A lazy squirrel that seems to say: "Stupid human...Just relax a little! See how good I have it? Not a care in the world!" He's just chillin', taking it easy, and thinking that all the students walking by him are idiots, too busy to just take a nap and enjoy life. Bet he changes his tune when he loses his teeth and needs a dentist.

He’ll change his tune when the snow flies and he doesn't have any nuts stock piled in a tree somewhere, because he was too busy mocking the students passing by. At that moment of regret and hunger he may have more on his mind than the dental student, soon to be married to the woman of his dreams, who will forever change his existence let alone his home (in a good way of course) has on his. Alternatively, maybe this rodent was just resting from the exhausting chaos that is nut hoarding.

Today, I wish I was that squirrel.

I saw a squirrel like that the other day down here when I was taking out the garbage. He was just splayed out on the sidewalk, sunning himself. He scampered off as soon as he saw me, though.
