The One That Gets Away
There is a squirrel in our backyard that lives to taunt Arthur. Seriously - I think it's its raison d'etre. And not only that, it perches on the fence right outside one of the the living room windows - about 3 feet away - and slanders Arthur to his face. It's a huge diss, I just know it.
There's no way Arthur can reach the squirrel, either inside (fence too far away) or outside (fence too high up), and it drives him mad.
"Someday," I tell him, "we're going to GET that bastard."
