my first squirrel


I'm standing in my backyard with my sling in one hand, and a tennis ball in the other, and a squirrel is sitting up on a tree branch munching on a walnut... and I'm thinking to myself..."I wonder if I could hit him..." so I loaded the ball... back pitched it... around once, around twice, and released the ball kind of slower but squarely in the squirrel's direction...

In the past, the safest place to be around me when I'm slinging is near the thing I'm aiming at... I've been so unlikely to hit my target...that it's a very safe spot... but this time... I hit the little guy. Good news is... I just barely brushed his tail... but the better news is... he moved and his tail that I hit was exactly where he had been a moment before... not sure what to think...
