I don’t know most of you, but those of you that I do know I like very much. However, this morning while I attempted my first bike ride in quite a while it seems as though you all were effing with me.
Now I don’t know if this was a joke or just a few odd coincidences but several of you jumped in front of me while I was attempting to pass. I’m sure it was hilarious to those watching or those, ahem, involved as I must have had a look of sheer panic on my face.
Yeah, I slowed down and swerved and a few of you little rodents just stood there as if playing chicken with me. And this happened not once, not twice, but three times in the span of a 5.39 mile bike ride.
What the eff squirrels?
I mean, I brake for you, I don’t let my dog harass you and this is what I get? So go ahead and laugh it up if it was a joke. If it was a mere coincidence than I am willing to forgive the whole thing. But know this, I’ll be getting better on that damn bike and won’t be so quick to break and swerve the next time.
That is all.
LOL! Squirrels love darting out in front of any moving object….dumb little effers!
That's pretty funny… I hit one of those fluffy tailed rats with my bike once… it was trying to cross in front of me and wound up running smack into the side of my tire. Then it was so scared it tried to run in front and get around me but I was going at the same speed that squirrels run so it just kept repeatedly grinding into the side of my tire till it finally wised up and ran the other direction up a tree…
Don't go to London then. They have parks with very, VERY friendly squirrels. So friendly they climb on you. Imagine that while riding a bike! O.O
May have been pack-hunting. Kinda like the raptors in Jurassic Park. Consider yourself fortunate you weren't captured and taken to the squirrel queen.
I once had a squirrel sneak into my apartment while I was enjoying happy hour. He kept me company for a weekend before I managed to force him back outside. Now, I seem to woo them to my window with my banjo.
Squirrels are PSYCHO!
They can sense fear, so just barrel into them!
Beware the squirrel gangs. Cute my ass…
