If You Feed a Bird Some Birdseed…

If you feed a bird some birdseed…

Then a squirrel will certainly nibble.

If that squirrel decides to nibble…

Then he’ll want a home to store the extra.

If the squirrel decides to store the extra…

Then it might be in your home.

If that squirrel uses your home…

He’ll undoubtedly scratch and claw.

If that squirrel scratches and claws…

Then you’ll have to call an exterminator.

If you call an exterminator…

Then you better hope he doesn’t trap one in the house.

If that squirrel gets trapped in the house…

Then you that rodent might succumb for lack of water.

If that rodent succumbs…

Then the flies will certainly follow.

If those flies do come…

Then you may have a buzzing problem in your house.

If that buzzing problem numbers in the hundreds…

Then you’ll have to call an exterminator.

If that exterminator gets called…

Then you better hope he finds that varmint.

If that exterminator finds that varmint…

Then the flies might go away…

I hope!

My slice of life post today is a true story told in modified Laura Numeroff circular style. I was so distraught with the fly infestation, I had to make light of it. The drawing is by my sister Deb, who passed away in December. Her illustration also made me chuckle over the craziness of the dilemma.
