You’re a squirrel. You’re out in the forest doing your nut-gathering thing when suddenly one of those big, fur-less squirrels that walk on two legs kneels down and extends a paw filled with your favorite nut. So you rush over and start helping yourself until, without warning, you just freeze.
That’s what happened with this little rodent from Russia. A person offered it a handful of nuts, and a few nuts in the squirrel just… freezes. It doesn’t appear to be scared, or injured. It just sits there. For almost two whole minutes. Pondering.
We’ve all been here at some point in 2020, right? Just going about our day, doing whatever needs doing, when suddenly the enormity of the hell-year we’re all living through sets in. And you just freeze, and think.
We feel you, little squirrel. This year has been a lot.
