Squirrels, it seems you are remiss in your annual fruit-tree pruning work. I noticed that I still have some almost-ripe pomegranates on my tree but last year, you had already decimated them all, even though the seeds were still white inside. Where are you? How could you have missed these bright red globes of goodness? Not hungry? Lost your appetite? Perhaps you’re spending too much time on the much smaller tomato-flavored red globes of goodness and neglected to notice that the pomegranates are almost ripe. I can’t imagine what’s keeping you mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, fruit-eating squirrels away from my tree??? Come back! I miss you! We can share. Oops… I gotta go. My pants are on fire.
