My co-worker sent an email saying he would be late because he was trying to untie a squirrel tail knot. I asked for a picture, and he delivered. This is the email he sent:
I was pressed into squirrel rescue this morning on my way out. 5 young squirrels got tangled in Christmas lights in my neighbor’s yard. We got the lights off, but now their tails are one big knot, so I have to bring them into a rescue place to untie them, as I am unequipped to untie squirrel tail knots. I should be in this afternoon.
Now that this is nearing 100,000 notes, I need to clear something up:
The Venn Diagram of boys who don’t like smart girls and boys you shouldn’t date is NOT a circle.
The thing is, if it were a circle, this would mean that the set of “boys you don’t want to date” is exactly the same as the set of “boys who don’t like smart girls.” But in fact I can imagine many situations in which you might not want to date a boy who DOES like smart girls. Some of these boys might include:
* Boys you just don’t want to date.
* Your brother.
So in fact, the circle of boys you don’t want to date is larger than, but entirely includes, the circle of boys who don’t like smart girls.
