Yesterday was my first day back on day shift. Did that make sense? I've been working nights for four months, and now I'm back on days. Anyway, enough of that. I was working overtime, which is shocking since we are a on a complete budget crisis here at work. But someone has to fill that vacation spot. I tried to hang out in the office for most of my six hour shift, but I eventually had to leave. When I went outside, I saw this crazy little squirrel running around the back parking lot. I couldn't tell if he was hungry, thirsty, or just plain nuts. And why was I trying to figure out what the "needs" of a squirrel were? Because it was HOT! The Animal Control Officer and I tried to feed him dog food. I think he just wanted water and some shade though. The silly squirrel kept going under the cars. Umm, not a smart move.
I ended up following this little dude or dudette around for like 15 minutes trying to feed him and get him to drink some water. It's pretty sad. I think it's because he can't talk back. I finally left him alone, which probably made him happy.
