another long story.
I was out looking through second hand stores for treasures, when I noticed the
time. I had an appointment to meet a University student for an interview
(Social services related) and be paid $25 for it. It was 2:30. Easiest was was
up one street, and catch a connecting bus. When I got to the corner, I noticed
some people fussing over a baby squirrel. It seemed unhurt, though a little
confused by all the attention. We managed to get it around a corner, and tried
to keep people from stepping on it. Most people were surprised, or just glad
they'd missed stepping on the poor thing. One guy gave a look as if to say "So
what if I did step on it".
I went into the convenience store right there, and bought a package of
Planter's roasted peanuts, unsalted. There's $2.02. I went back out, opened the
package with my teeth, and offered the squirrel some. It took a peanut right
from my hand. Another man went to the Popeye's across the street and got a box
big enough for the squirrel, and gathered up the peanuts I'd left, then managed
to gently pick up the squirrel and place it in the box, and close the lid
without panicking it. I gave the man the rest of the peanuts, saying, "Here,
take the resst of these,. I had been going to share them with the boys, but I'd
bought them for the squirrel.
