Squirrels in love

December 3, 2003

I saw two squirrels flirting this morning. They were dancing on an electrical wire by the lake where I go walking. It reminded me of the Cha-Cha: Forward, then back. Forward, then back again.

Just get it on already, I thought to myself as I briskly walked by.

Squirrel #1, however, had something else in mind and scampered the other way. Oh. That one’s playing hard to get.

And just like a squirrel in love, Squirrel #2 went running after it.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
