Squirrel – In which Spectre writes a script


“No man,” said Spectre, “it’s a book I have been writing!”

“About vampire squirrels?” laughed Sprite.

“Well yes,” said Spectre, “but more than that!”

“Such as?” asked Sprite.

“It’s a script see, for the theatre,” said Spectre. “It’s all about this squirrel who keeps quipping terrible puns.”

“Ah,” said Sprite. “So it’s a play on words?”

  1. This delighted me. There was just a frantic squirrel on our back porch this morning. I think he disliked the spring snow too.

            I have lots of friends, including some of my closest friends, from the UK. Prolly because they’re amiable people? ^-^
