All right. I know they're squirrels. I understand this. I understand that they are (sort of) wild animals who are foraging for food in an urban landscape. And so while I was, to put it mildly, put out by the challah-roll-in-stroller-canopy incident, I understood. Kind of.
But this was totally gratuitous.
Yesterday, I came down to the stroller to find what looked weirdly like blue confetti sprinkled all over the seat. Closer inspection revealed that the seatbelt buckle was actually chewed off. Completely. No possible way to use stroller seatbelt.
Now, what was the point of that? There was no food on the seatbelt buckle. There was not, to the best of my knowledge, any food inside the seatbelt buckle, unless Graco has taken to hiding challah inside their molded plastic.
There's no other explanation for it. It was sheer squirrelly malice.
