  5. I was in the bathroom sitting on the toilet trying to do #2. I suddenly noticed two holes on the walls of my bathroom. From the holes came a squirell. All of a sudden I had gray knotted yarn in my hands. I was playing with the squirell with the yarn while I was sitting on the toilet. I was scared of the animal. I taught it would bite me. The squirell went back to the hole and would come out again. I had my bathroom door open and I was scared that the squirell would leave the bathroom and hurt my 4 year old that was in the other room.
