What is it with guys who like rodents?

First there was Groundhog Guy. Now there's Squirrel Boy. As you may have guessed, given my lack of posts since last weekend, the date was, well, fine. There was nothing really wrong with Carl except for the complete lack of chemistry between us. Had there been chemistry I could have overlooked the fact that we spent most of the five hours together engaged in sarcastic banter. Or that we spent over an hour in the botanical garden (it's big, but not that big). Or that every time he saw a squirrel he had to stop and take a picture of it with his cell phone camera. Or the fact that though we are the same age, I felt like I was about five years older than him.

Needless to say, we won't be going out again. Oh well. I tried.

It's good that you gave it your best shot. I must admit that it would be seriously annoying to talk to a guy who kept stopping to take pictures of a squirrel - especially with a cell phone camera! I don't know why that strikes me as obnoxious, but it really does. I like taking pictures, I even like squirrels somewhat, but this dude sounds like he was easily distracted and had a short attention span. I've got no patience for that shit.

Have to say that this was one of the funniest things I've ever read. Remind me to tell you about Amnesia Boy.
