Letter From the Squirrels

I was passing through the Henry Administration Building on my way to class and saw a squirrel in a White Sox hat—you know, the small plastic kind that they serve ice cream in. It was pasting this note outside of one of the rooms. I thought it might have to do with that letter that the university sent to the squirrels, so I waited until it scurried away and then took a closer look. Here is what it said: 


We will not stop. Our behavior is very good. We have done nothing wrong except for stealing this marker. We have stolen some money too but not that much. It is you who is the thief. Tell your students to stop taunting us with food and taking pictures of us, or we will throw more acorns.




Class of 2020
I’m a senior here at the university, majoring in English and Math and minoring in Spanish. I’ve lived in Illinois all my life, sharing a room with my sister and many crickets. As the youngest in my family, I’m lucky enough to have my older siblings’ advice and perspective as I make my way through college!
