I fire stomps and flail my arms in hopes of scaring it away. Nothing. I reach toward the sliding door lock and abruptly flick it upwards, then, in a violent sequence I produce a cacophony of loud sounds. First, the sliding door, then, the screen door. The only response I get is a flinch.

I suddenly come to realize that the only thing I did was condition it to understand that I was not here to hurt it.

        OH HAHA
        squirrels are funny
        we went to this huge river in a canyon once (near the grand canyon but not actually in it) and there were squirrels all over the entire park that tried to steal our food
        they are not scared at all bc they were used to the visitors it was funny XD
