Build It, and Squirrel Will Come (Category: Humor)

I was working on a landscaping project in the backyard, when I heard a voice whisper:  “Build it, and squirrel will come.”  I said:  “What?”  The voice whispered again:  “Build it, and squirrel will come.”  I said:  “Am I imaging things?”  The voice whispered again:  “Build it, and squirrel will come.”

Well, now, I was particularly inspired to finish the project.  Weeks later, as I was finishing the project; I saw squirrel.  He was in one of the mulch portions of the project.  He looked for some nuts.  Afterward, he just stood there, enjoying things as they were.  Then, he departed.  Then, I heard the voice whisper:  “I said he would come.  I didn’t say he would do anything special.”
