Chip on my shoulder

While driving to work this morning, I thought I felt something brush past my pants leg near the pedals. Glancing down, I couldn’t see anything on the floor of my car. I decided to inspect more closely once I got to work.

A few moments later, I felt something land on my shoulder. My startle must have startled it and it jumped right back off. As I pulled over in a panic, I glanced in the rear-view mirror and saw a chipmunk in the back of the car.

I believe that is the first (and I hope the last) time I have ever had a chipmunk on my shoulder. I’m quite glad it wasn’t a mouse or rat.

I opened the door and after a few minutes the chipmunk departed and ran into the woods. I think I shall henceforth be careful to close my windows when parking in my own garage.
