It was a dark and stormy night, and the grant deadline was just hours away. A seasoned grant writer was working tirelessly at his desk, filling in scary budget numbers. Suddenly, the office went dark. Shadows were cast across the blank computer screen where just minutes ago an almost fully completed grant application shone brightly. The grant writer’s mind immediately was thrown into the catacombs of unearthly possibilities. Is it a thief in the night trying to hide his entrance? Could it finally be the zombie apocalypse or aliens trying to take him to a different land? It was only after he made his way across the dim room to peer through the window that he realized it was none of those frightening movie possibilities but a squirrel who had unwittingly sacrificed itself on the power transformer, knocking out the electricity and causing a headache for the grant writer on grant deadline day! The squirrel, alas, was at peace.
