I saw you almost
cream that squirrel. I was right behind you on Cypress Avenue when I noticed something under your Ford Taurus as you cruised along, oblivious to the rodent drama playing out beneath you. The squirrel had entered from the left side and, like a wayward pinball, darted back and forth for a good 15 seconds before managing to escape toward me from between your rear tires. Emerging visibly unscathed, the beast scampered up a nearby tree. No squirrel would die today.

A pickup, a bicycle and a moment of road rage.
