“I can’t believe he’s actually doing it.”


“Shut up!  They’re going to hear us!”

“This is insane.  I told you not to dare him.  This is stupid, stupid, stupid.”

“He’s a grown squirrel and can make his own decisions.”


“Oh for crying out loud, do you want to get him killed?”

“If Ricky doesn’t make it back, I call dibs on his nest.”


“Dibs! Dibs!”

“You guys suck, you know that?”

“I know, but–”

“And I dealt with the situation, didn’t I?  I found a solution, right?  I took action.”

“I am a cat of action.  What have you done today besides complaining?  Anything, Ralph?”

“OK.  It’s just, well…  You realize we’re sitting on a dog, right?”

“It’s called a ‘calculated risk.’  Look it up.”

“Like that time you decided we should try sitting on the sleeping wolverine last winter?  Was that a ‘calculated risk?’  Because I still have calculated bite marks on my you-know-where from that swell idea.”

“If you don’t shut up, I’m going to give you a calculated slap in the face.”
