I was sitting at the Warren high school football game Friday evening, when I started listening to my mom and sisters conversation. My sister Tonya just showed up at the game and my mom said to her “Hey how have you been?” Tonya said, “I have been great, but really busy helping Richard build a cage for our new pets.” My mom was unaware that she got new pets so she said, “Oh, what new pets?” My sister said, “We just got two baby squirrels!” At this point my mother was completely shocked, and didn’t know what to say. It was silent for a brief second, and then my mom said, “What do you feed them.” My sister said, “They eat nuts, fruit, veggies, seeds, and corn.” My mom said, “Wow, that’s funny!

Those are very creative names.” My uncle popped his head in again and said, “Enough squirrel talk! Watch the game!” My mom and sister, at the same time said, “OK!” After that everyone got quiet for a second, and then the talking started again. At this point I was tired of listening, so I started watching the game....
