This is probably the most exciting thing that happens at our apartment on any given day.
Here's how it usually goes:
I'll see a squirrel scamper up to perch on the small branches of the one tree and start looking expectantly at the other tree, where it clearly desperately wants to be. But how can it get there?! It'll wave its tail frantically and bounce up and down a few times.
Then, amidst rousing cries of "DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!" (from me and Paul)....
We haven't witnessed any mishaps yet. Be safe, acrobatic squirrels!
