‘I want to go out and play’, says Bandanna.
‘But there are humans out there. You can’t. You Shouldn’t’ says Mom.
‘But I am so cute. No human will want to hurt me. I do really want to go out and play’. Bandanna pleads on.
Sternly Mom responds, ‘ humans are strange creatures – can’t trust them – sometimes you are just too cute for them. You have to wait till its dark’.
Bandanna takes a deep little Chipmunk sigh.
‘Mom you are so fearful. I get it that I have to be careful. But must I be so fearful of humans? I want to fly off the bird stands, chase the birds away. How will I make memories if I never venture out’
The sun is shining on Chipmunk Dale. The Fall color’s are in abundance.
And we hope that Bandanna’s mom will let him go out and play.
