Photo Challenge / Writing Prompt #29

The chirping from this chipmunk was so loud I’m sure his paws were cupped to his mouth to amplify his story to the far edges of the yard. Look. His paws are poised to do it again. What was his story? I suspect he was telling all the other creatures about the mugging, which I witnessed a few days earlier.

Squirrel had been a few yards away, peering at Chippy from behind the peony. He then darted around a bush and rushed the unsuspecting little guy. Without a please or thank you, he grabbed Chippy’s piece of pizza crust, turned tail, and ran.

  1. I used to like chipmunks before I realized how loud they are and before they started stealing our blueberries. 😉
