“I think they’re treasures! Falling treasures. ‘s why they’re shiny!” The first stargazing squirrel nodded decisively.
The second squirrel shook his head. “Nuh uh. Nuts. A big sky creature is dropping nuts on hooman heads.”
The first squirrel tilted his head, peering up at the shooting stars. This theory did make quite a bit of sense to him.
“Then why are they glowing?”
A moment of silence as both squirrels scratched their heads. Then the second one nodded again. “Sky magics. The nuts in the sky are glowy, see! There must be a huge forest up there, ‘n we can see just the glowy nuts!”
“Ooooooo.” The first squirrel tilted his head, pondering this. “Maybe there’s a harvest going on and they’re shaking the trees!”
“Yes! ‘n maybe, mayyybe if we find one sky nut, it’ll be a feast for whole family tree!”
