I made a daring escape from the cubicle yesterday because it was just gorgeous outside. So I walked around for a while. Everybody was out, which was nice to see. As I’m headed back toward the building, this guy emerges from a side door. He looked like Santa Klaus, that is, if Santa Klaus wore a business suit and overall looked like a sorcerer.
He takes two steps out, throws some crackers on the ground, and starts mumbling a few phrases to himself. Then after about five seconds he turns around and walks inside. So I’m like, oh, he’s feeding & talking to the birds or something. But I look around, and I see no bird or animal or anything in sight.
So I make it a point to walk over, stand over the crackers, and look in every direction for anything that would eat said crackers and I don’t see anything. Hmm. So maybe the sorcerer was doing some kind of incantation and the crackers are going to turn into a bird? Or maybe he just left them there for a bird to get later? Or maybe he’s a crazy man who throws crackers on the ground and mumbles to himself? I for one have done far crazier things than that. But I went back inside because I didn’t have an answer.
I left later that day, via that side door, to check on cracker status. Sure enough, there was a squirrel right where the crackers were. And the crackers were gone. When I opened the door he ran off. So I guess Santa was feeding the squirrels. Or, or, just maybe, the crackers turned into a squirrel after all.
