another incident involved someone who overheard a man talking about a squirrel, glue, and a safety deposit box, but given my relationship with squirrels, i decided to remove it.

can i share with you how much the phrase "safety deposit box" is like nails on a chalk board? it's only a safe deposit box because it's secured in a vault. it's not going to prevent you from scraping your knees or breaking a hip if you trip and fall.

i blame the squirrel man.
