Adventure in the Park
I decided that since the sun was actually shining, I was going to take my lunch and a book to the park for a while. Now I am used to the wildlife at Regent's park as there is a large water foul population that people like to feed. There are a million pigeons as well. But today was a bit different. I am sitting on my towel, chomping away on my Asian slaw and a squirrel comes rather close to my towel and looks at me as if to say, "May I have some?" (he says "may" instead of "can" because he is British). I look and the thing and yell "SHOO!" He moves to the back of the towel and basically stalks me for 25 minutes. I am threatened because I have nothing to throw at him and he could have rabies or something. Finally, after much shooing, he winds up in my grocery bag. Unfortunately for him, there was only toilet paper in the bag.
Here is a picture of the little stalker:
