Presidential Match

On a recent trip to the nation's capitol, I was again challenged for my crown. This time by a presidential squirrel. At first, I thought since the squirrel had just run from the rose garden that it might be followed by some members of the Squirrel Service, so I gave some time to make sure he wasn’t being protected. This game was a game of strategy beyond any other game I had played.

By using the fence which was very out of bounds for me (as I feared getting close might be very bad for my health) the squirrel kept me at bay. After a lengthy taunting session, the game time ran out and the game was called a draw. I left the grounds with a feeling of defeat. Maybe I should come back in 4 years to try again.
