…is that they always make things so much harder than they need to be.
Case in point.
I have a friend who is a wicked awesome blog/website designer (you are admiring his work on this very site.) His name is Greg. You may know him as Telling Dad. Or you may not know him at all (in which case, I pity you.) Anyway, Greg has no problem coding an entire website but he does have a little problem (or a BIG one, according to him)….squirrels.
For the whole story, read this. To put it simply, Greg is trying to outwit the squirrels and not succeeding. When I first learned of his problem, I was picturing a squirrel who looked like this:
But really, Greg just has a very active imagination and is a total dude. In reality, it is just a regular old squirrel problem. And like any total dude, he had to devise many contraptions to trick the “dreaded ninja squirrel.” This is just one of them:
And he failed. Again and again. *Trust me, you will want to go and read the whole post just to have a good laugh.*
What Greg has forgotten in his testosterone fueled quest to end the dreaded squirrel’s reign of terror, is that Mother Nature (a female) will take care of it if you just let her. It is the circle of life and instead of building a bazillion contraptions, you should watch The Lion King and then…
GO ADOPT A CAT. Meet Sheriff, our cat. The reason we do not have any rodent or deadly ninja squirrel problems. You’re welcome, Greg.
