One ... day ... - I hope to open a thread and see NO mention of squirrels !!!!!
Middle English squirel, from Anglo-French escurel, esquirel, from Vulgar Latin *scuriolus, diminutive of scurius, alteration of Latin sciurus, from Greek skiouros, probably from skia shadow + oura tail
Transitive verb :
from the squirrel's habit of storing up gathered nuts and seeds for winter use
: to store up for future use —often used with away , such as to squirrel away some money
So --- can we squirrel away any mention of squirrels into the proverbial black hole ....
