once bitten, twice shy

A few months ago I sent in my donation (three pair of earrings) to the Craft for China fundraiser. Please take a few minutes and check out the Craft for China website and then go to the Ebay auction which just opened yesterday. It is for a very good cause and there are really great things being auctioned off.


Yesterday was the FCC Kite Festival Picnic. The highlights were flying kites, of course, (Thomas got a spiffy Spiderman kite from Target), Sparkles the clown, Ben getting stung by a bee, and me getting bitten by a squirrel. Yes, you read that right. A squirrel.

Tell me, what kind of brazen rodent thinks they can take on a human? What is this world coming to? I know they are rationing rice at Costco and gas prices are causing a small hysteria in the suburbs, but really, has the mania trickled down to rodents? Are they rising up in revolt?

Thankfully, he didn't break the skin. I was, however, extremely embarrassed by the screech I let out when he chomped down on my thumb. I recoiled in humiliation to my lawn chair where Ben sat pulling a stinger from the bottom of his foot. I heard the soft murmured questions from the spectators. "She was bit by what? A what? A squirrel? Was she harassing it? Well, she shouldn't be feeding them anyway. You did say is was a squirrel right?"

All this just because I didn't have another Ghirardelli brownie to share with with the scoundrel. Ingrate.
