Slice of Life/Day in a Sentence: Peeking At The Underbelly

(The Slice of Life Challenge in March is hosted by Two Writing Teachers as way to encourage teachers-as-writers. You can join in, if you want. There is also a monthly call for Slices on Tuesdays. You can write then, too)

A rainy, dreary Sunday was broken up unexpectedly by a squirrel clinging upside down on the window screen of the living room, sparking a confused ruckus for the dogs and giving us all a closer look at the furry underbelly of a gray squirrel.

Peace (holding on),

  1. Squirrels may be cute, but not in my house. One lived here for five days while we were away; more chew through my garden flags and ropes to swings and dig up my seedlings, making a mess of my containers. Blergh!

  2. …a closer look at the furry underbelly… I love that part of the sentence! What a way to shake up a dreary Sunday!
