FRIDAY:
The Extremist

A parental visit best forgotten

PREACHER MAN

I was trying to take it easy
the night before the Wisconsin.
game.
My family wasn't here for the
weekend, so I decided to do some
studying. I was walking home
from the library around midnight
on Friday when a white SUV
stopped next to me as I walked
down Packard.
A 90-pound girl, obviously
drunk, stumbled out of the car
and promptly vomited on the
sidewalk.
Not long after, the girl's mom
got out of the front seat to help
her daughter get up the last of the
puke, while drunken party-goers
looked on, some in silence, others
commenting on the respectable
size of the girl's puddle.
Her father sat in the driver's
seat with his head on the steer-
ing wheel, most likely wondering
how much vomit was splashed on
to the white leather seats of his

shiny new SUV, trying to figure

Squirrel bonding
Last week I had one of those
bizarre shared experiences that
momentarily connects you to
strangers in a way that could never
be replicated.
Walking toward the Diag, I saw
a squirrel fall out of a tree.
Seriously, it just fell. Two sto-
ries.
The first passerbyto respond was
a student pushing speakers toward
the steps of the grad library.

"Eep!" she squeaked, turning
away from the squirrel body in
horror. "I don't think I can walk
past it."
Then everyone in that little cor-
ner of the Diag - men in business
suits, co-opers on bikes - joined
together in an unbelieving chorus.
"Oh crap, that squirrel!"
For seconds, we all stood mes-
merized by the furry, unmoving
form, not knowing what to do or
who to call.
Then, miraculously, the squirrel
twitched, jumped up on its legs and
scurried back up the tree like noth-
ing happened.
We rejoiced, "Oh crap, that
squirrel!"
Perhaps I'm reaching a little far
in trying to find some philosophi-
cal meaning here. But one thing's
for sure: the sound of a squir-
rel belly flopping on pavement is
weird.
