Squirrel Mistakes Toilet For Attic

funny dog blogIt amazes me what scares humans.

Take my old man, for instance. There was a time, right after he graduated college, when he lived with two other guys. They were young, strong, and unafraid of the curveballs life throws at you.  In short, they were naive children, in grown up bodies.

One day, a bat happened to find its way into their humble abode. They sat watching TV when the bat made its appearance. What followed was a scream fest you hear from a pack of six year-olds when you take their lollipops away.

These so called men ran for their lives, and the door, all the while screaming bloody murder at the top of their lungs.

And about what? A tiny little bat.

What ensued was a 12 hour standoff, with the ‘men’ sleeping under blankets while all the windows and doors lay open. To this day, all three have yet to regain their self respect.

Anyway, that’s the story that came to mind when I read about today’s squirrel tale from KVS12.

BENTON, IL (KFVS) – A Benton, Illinois man got a shock of a lifetime when he flushed his toilet Tuesday.

“I flushed my toilet, it made a funny noise,” Jeff Shockley said.  ”I flushed a second time and the squirrel came up and I freaked out. I screamed and slammed the door.”

he said.

Shockley says he can laugh now about the ordeal, but adds that wasn’t that case Tuesday morning.

If you want to read about a great squirrel story, don’t forget to read Chapter 22 of my book Bad to the Bone titled “Ain’t Gonna Be No Rematch.”
