As I was driving to work today, I saw this squirrel darting across a four lane highway. He got past the first two lanes no problem. As he entered the third lane a white truck was zooming down the road. I was behind the truck and thought, oh boy the squirrel is not going to make it. The truck clearly did not see him and kept going. As the truck went over him, I could see that he dodged the first tire and then bounced off of some point of the undercarriage of the car. Much to my surprise the squirrel came flying out of the side of the car and kept running. I was impressed that he was able to handle all the obstacles he was facing. Then I realized the squirrel and I are a lot alike.
