NO... No, I'm not singin' Christmas carols in September. Would I, Seville the Cat, do somethin' like that?
Well actually, I kinda am. Heheheheheh... Yup, I was kinda hummin' along to that song, but...
BUT I'M SINGIN' IT FOR REASONS TOTALLY UNRELATED TO CHRISTMAS.
The thing is, I was watchin' some squirrels this mornin' - and FYI, squirrels are not really Christmassy - and I've come to the conclusion that they...
Prance. You know, as in Prancer.
Yup, they do. And they dash, as in Dasher, too!
As for the dancin', they leave that to the peep.
That is if you wanna call what she does dancin'. It's really more like stickin' a leg out here, an arm out there, and spinnin' around a bit on occasion. She thinks it's dancin' on account of her makin' those stupid lookin' movements to music, but the thing is...
THERE'S NO MUSIC TO BE HEARD!
Nope, not a sound. There's not a single, solitary note to be found.
Apparently, the music is all in her head.
I sure do hope that the imaginary music sounds better than those dance moves of hers, look.
But back to the dashin' and prancin' of squirrels.
Those squirrels are quite the characters to watch, you know. They leap and bound across the front lawn, which would normally bother me on account of their trespassin' ON MY PROPERTY, but they're so funny to watch, I'm not plannin' on pressin' any charges.
Charges of trespassin', that is.
But one more acorn to the head, and I'll be callin' the RCMP to press charges for assault, for sure.
Well actually, I'm not too worried 'bout when they toss acorns at the peep's head. I'm not gonna bother goin' to the police about that.
But if they start tossin' acorns at ME, that's totally different, for sure.
Hmmm... Now that I think about it, I have to wonder if all those acorns Peepers has taken to the head have anythin' to do with the imaginary musicians she has livin' in there.
But back to the squirrels. Again. Like I was sayin', they've been racin' back and forth, and forth and back, and back and forth again across MY FRONT YARD, like runnin' back and forth is goin' outta style. You should see 'em! They've been leapin in the air like horsies doin' the ol' steeplechase thing. Then when they reach the base of a tree, they dash up it, toss a few acorns at the peep is she's out and about, then do a little dance...
OH MY MOUSES! The squirrels DO dance! It's true. Yeah, they do a little dance up on the branches of the tree after tossin' acorns at the peep and before dashin' back down to start their prancin' steeplechase all over again.
Well I'll be...
Have to wonder, though. Do squirrels hear imaginary music in their heads like the peep hears in hers while she totally embarrasses herself - and more importantly, ME - while doin' what she thinks is dancin'?
Yup, one has to wonder, for sure.
I'd ask her myself, but the last time I commented on her "dancing," she gave me dirty looks for like a week.
Not MY fault she sucks as a dancer. Nope, not my fault, at all.
IF IN DOUBT,
DON'T. GO. OUT.
