There must have been a lot of squirrel-killing on Sugar’s part, because hanging on a nail in the garage was a tool known officially as the “squirrel-tongs.” These tongs were for putting dead squirrels in the trash. A better descriptor would be “barbecue tongs,” for they were the sort of large-scale tongs. As an adult, I tend to refer to all tongs as “squirrel-tongs.”
