I've got my sleeves rolled up on the rewrite and revision of my novel draft (TMH). Today, I'm working on revising some squirrel narration. While The Jets of 'West Side Story' provided the inspiration for the group of them all together, some of them, like the previously mentioned Cookie (Mamie van Doren), are characters all to themselves.
Floyd the squirrel wouldn't exist without the fancy footwork and delightful words of one Donald O'Connor, specifically his character Cosmo Brown in Singing in the Rain. In my head, Floyd dances in his spare time. I want to think he does the following routine with the trees in Balboa Park. I'd like to also think that he gets tips in the form of berries, seeds, and maybe a stray potato chip.
Take it away, Floyd... er... Donald.
