    My wife: Live & let live

    So Willow the Destoyer was out for his morning hunt, and bagged himself a baby squirrel that fell out of the ash tree overnight. Not only was he prepping his meal, he was also fending off mama squirrel.

    My wife: "What does he have?"

    Me: Squirrel.

    Wife: big or little?

    Me: pretty small


    Wife freaks out, goes and breaks up the party.


    Me: If the squirrel was bigger, you would applaud him.

    Wife: Not a fair fight. Any animal that goes after babies should be kept indoors or eradicated.

    Me: So are you saying lions should live in the house, or should we systematically remove them? How about tigers?

    Wife: I was up all night working, and you had 3 Spotted Cows last night. I'm going to bed. I expect breakfast.

    My wife saved a baby bird from our basement window well. Five minutes later, he hopped into the road and got ran over by a car. It was sad and hilarious at the same time.

    Wow, if you managed to win the argument that easily kudos to you. However, I get the sense that you're wife will retaliate in a way which will make not caring about baby squirrels seem like an awful choice in hindsight.

    I saved a baby cardinal from the neighbors labs. Just couldn't bare the thought. A robin or blackbird on the otherhand....open season.

    Re: My wife: Live & let live

    You should have played some Paul McCartney & Wings or Guns and Roses for her:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK2hKzZss5Y"]Paul McCartney & WINGS - Live And Let Die - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JjVPiDLdH4"]Guns N' Roses-Live and Let Die W/Lyrics - YouTube[/ame]

    And then just went on your own to sleep in Willow's doghouse.
