So today was the greatest day of my life so far. In my four years at the College of Wooster, I have admired these little critters from afar. They have always scurried past me and all I have ever wanted was to hold one. (I really would love a pet squirrel) Yet, today was the day.
As I was walking back from dinner, I saw this baby from afar. I said to my friend, “look a baby!!” From there I approached the squirrel and it started to come to me. I think I speak squirrel. Then I saw the momma squirrel creeping toward me. The baby then came to me through my legs and tried to jump in my friends bag. It then ran back to the tree. I then proceeded to think “was this my chance?” I then grabbed the squirrel, ever so gently, I had the squirrel in my hand, then I saw the momma start to dart at me. I put the baby back on the tree. He sat there and stared at me, like he wanted me to pet him; So I did. I pet him and it was the most glorious thing ever. After a long while, I had to let the baby go back to its real momma. I have never felt so satisfied.
I will never get over this day. Let this be a holiday. I can now die peacefully….. I can also graduate (in 3 weeks) fulfilled. :)
