Jessica: Andy, I keep seeing squirrels everywhere. I don’t know if it’s the weather shift or what’s going on, but they are so adorable.
Andy_H: Well, Jessica, I’ve seen a lot of squirrels. I’ve seen plenty in America: black squirrels, grey squirrels, thin-tailed squirrels, bushy-tailed squirrels.
Andy_H: They can be really intelligent and fascinating, and they can also be a real pain sometimes.
Jessica: I didn’t know there were so many different types of squirrels!
Andy_H: There’s a multitude in America, depending on where you live. And in fact, there are a bunch of squirrels living in a tree in my backyard, and they have no hesitation throwing nuts down at us while we sit down and try to enjoy a picnic.
Jessica: Yeah, they aren’t very predictable. We have a big tree in our backyard, too. And sometimes, they’re antisocial and leave us alone, but sometimes, they’ll run right up and bother us. But they are really cute. I just need to remember not to reach out and pet them.
Andy_H: You definitely don’t want to do that. They will act on instinct, and they may hurt you.
Jessica: Oh, that is true! Thanks for the warning.
