Every day I drive to my office downtown, park in a lot about 1/2 block away and proceed to walk, across two streets and to the front door. On my way to the door, I pass several businesses, including a bakery, but I pass these businesses on the back side of the buildings as opposed to the front.
So, I was walking up the sidewalk, getting ready to cross the first of the two streets that I cross, when I see the strangest sight coming across the parking lot behind the bakery. At first I could not tell exactly what it was, but as it came closer, I could make out a squirrel. Now a squirrel is not an unusual sight during the springtime, but this one was, for it was carrying in it’s little jaws a large, chocolate cupcake, wrapped in plastic wrap.
It struck me as unusually humorous, since you seldom see a sight like this one. The cupcake was almost larger than the carrier!! He managed to get it across the street, and make his way carefully up a tree. It started my day off with a smile.
