Daily Weird # 15 (Squirrel in Toilet)
Are You Finished Yet???
As a mom, there aren’t many places you can go for a little peace and privacy. If you are looking for a place, the kitchen, garage, and even the doghouse are losers, your best bet is usually the restroom. It’s a crapshoot, but there’s at least a small chance for a few moments of quiet time.
Unless, of course, you’re the Oklahoma woman who found a little something extra in her toilet, namely, a squirrel. The squirrel was very polite, even offering to hand her the toilet paper. She passed and called 911.
Officer, Derek Kennedy, came running as soon as he got the call from dispatch. While there had been a rash of “mice in toilet” calls lately, the squirrel call was new. He suspected right away it was the leader of the mice, and an invasion had begun. Ok, everything after the word “dispatch” was completely made up… but how cool would that be?
It took patience, and time, but eventually Officer Kennedy was able to rescue the squirrel from the hostile environment and send it back into the park directly across the street. Once back among the trees, the squirrel quickly went back to playing hide-n-seek with the other varmints.
So just remember, the next time you go to the restroom for a well-deserved time out, lift the lid and check the water before sitting down. Oh, and if you do happen to see a squirrel, please be kind, and don’t flush!
