I am Wiggles, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges.
Miss Sweetie: No, you aren’t. Aunt Stella is. Don’t make stuff up.
Wiggles: Hey, Stella isn’t out here with us. She doesn’t know what I am saying.
Miss Sweetie: Okay. I will tell her what you said later when we get back inside.
Jerky McSquirrelyFace: Chuk. Chuk. Chuk. Ahck. Ahck. Ahck.
Miss Sweetie: Cool! Look at that! Lady Human, what is the squirrel saying?
Me: I don’t know. I don’t speak squirrel.
Wiggles: What is he doing with his tail?
Me: I think it is some kind of signal. But he is looking straight at me.
Jerky McSquirrelyFace: Chuk! Chuk! Chuk! Chuk! Ahck!
Me: Okay. I think he is saying to watch out. There are predators around.
Wiggles: What predators? I don’t see any predators?
Me: I think he means us. Especially me. He is still looking right at me.
Miss Sweetie: That is not fair. I am a predator. Why isn’t he looking at me? Now I feel left out.
Me: Maybe he is warning me that you are the predators.
Wiggles: Lady Human, never listen to a squirrel. All they do is talk gibberish.
