We talk about squirrels in the Angry Household way too much. It probably started with my post, Rocky the Squirrel, which my friend, Shannon, still makes fun of.
I told my mom about Rocky the Squirrel, then she begins to tell me that "she" has a pet squirrel, named Pepe. You have to know my mom, because she's a little crazy, and somewhat random at times. It makes sense. So she begins to tell me how there's the squirrel that follows her around her condo complex. She's the HOA Association President, yea, she's bored, and has control issues. Plus, she's kind of gossipy. Gee, I wonder where I get my character traits from? Anyway, Pepe has been around for about two months.
My mom constantly talks about this squirrel like he's a stray cat or dog. She tells me about how he shows up on her porch and she feeds him nuts. Well I was at my mom's house one day, and I finally saw Mr. Pepe. The squirrel approached the screen door, and flung himself at the screen door. He literally climbed half way up it, and puffed up his tail. He was begging for food. So my mom breaks out a can of pricey almonds, because he apparently only likes almonds, and feeds him. The squirrels takes the almonds and disappears. My mom tells me that it happens several times a day. I think someone needs a hobby besides patrolling the condo complex, feeding squirrels, and trolling the mall.
Angry Toddler was watching his DVR'ed shows tonight. Yea, we parent via DVR at night. No judging. It works and well, sometimes you need to get things done. He was watching Phineas and Ferb. This is really one of the only cartoon-type shows that we can stand. And this video, Squirrels in My Pants, comes on. I almost fell out of my chair, but once again, I had a ten minute conversation with my mom today, about Pepe.
P.S. The Angry Family has a small obsession with Star Wars right now. That's a whole other post. I had to mix my mom's squirrel obsession with our Star Wars obsession, cause I'm random like that. And really, you can find pictures of anything and everything on the net.
