Super Squirrel

Dear Optimists,

I know I know, you aren’t used to two posts in one day, but I shared a little happening from last night with Nadia and we felt we just HAD to share.

I was watching the Philadelphia Phillies Major League Baseball playoff game against the St. Louis Cardinals, and I have to say I’m not much of a baseball fan. Hockey is my thing. And when you’ve been watching hockey your whole life, baseball is a bit slow. So I was shocked last night when, after a pitch, I got a little entertainment from this furry little fellow:

Okay, not that one. That’s Nadia’s interpretation of the little guy. But a squirrel ran across the field. Sure, that doesn’t sound all that funny, but I laughed pretty hard. The replays were what really got me, though. I hurt myself laughing when they started showing the replays. They had many different shots of the critter, and even a few in slow motion! I laughed until my eyes watered. The best was that every cameraman decided to ignore play on the field and follow the squirrel instead 🙂

Here you go, watch it and enjoy:

More often than not, people wonder what I'm up to. I'm a people watcher, and love to tell a stranger's story, as I see it. If you see me reading or writing in a coffee shop, there's a good chance I'm making up a story about you at that moment. I'm a visual person who loves finding inspiration in my surroundings, and believe that sometimes the smallest detail can tell the majority of the story, if you have the sense to recognize it.

  2. Haha! I watched it thousand times. It’s really funny.

    the attention was on the squirrel!

    the slow-mo was really great too!

    “squirrel on action!”
    it seemed that the little guy was just playing on the field too. A happy hour for him.
