26 Jan

Last night, John and I stumbled home exhausted, ate some fudgesicles and eggplant, and made a fire.

About 20 minutes into an old House rerun, “Honey, I think we have a problem.”  And a squirrel comes scurrying out of the fireplace!

Being deathly afraid of those needles they use to treat rabies, I, of course, shriek like a little boy as the squirrel beelines for the couch.  After I gather my wits, I proceed to defend the stairway as John swats the squirrel out the door with a broom.

We need a dog.

    No, you need a cap on your chimney. It keeps bats, squirrels and birds out.
    Animals in the chimney is almost always an event that ends badly — for the animal.

      thanks for the tip! this animal was definitely okay…though i’m surprised how long he tolerated up having a fire in his home :/

    Ha! I think squirrels hibernate, so it must have been a rude awakening…

      I know, poor thing! the back story is that this was our second squirrel…the first one got trapped. we think they might be falling in from the roof, eager for a warm place to sleep :/

    I think if you look up Native American myths you will find that the squirrel in a home is suppose to symbolize something like good health, happiness or something along that line. Rob and I are still laughing!!! Yes he says you need some sort of cover on your chimney. I think your landlord would be happy to take care of it. lol We love you guys!!!

      what a nice thought! thanks, christine 🙂 and, yes, turns out we had a chimney cap but it was just not quite placed correctly post chimney inspection earlier this winter. we’re all set now and enjoyed a beautiful, animal-free fire last night!

    Whilst I actually like this post, I think there was an punctuational error near towards the end of the 3rd paragraph.
