In days such as these, what everyone really needs is something to lift the spirits and calm the heart. Something to bring a little joy and whimsy into this so-called life. What everyone needs is a little bit of Twiggy, the waterskiing squirrel.
Started from the bottom, now she here.
And lucky for us, the chance to see Twiggy is coming, courtesy of the 60th annual Detroit Boat Show happening at Cobo Center this Saturday through Feb. 25. The show is touted as "Michigan's biggest winter rendezvous" and a chance to hang out at a tiki bar, see some cool boats, and delight in the knowledge that summer will be here soon eventually.
If you can't make Twiggy's performances at the Boat Show, you can always delight in the unofficial Twiggy the Water Skiing Squirrel Facebook page, which is described as "Just a squirrel who loves water skiing and dank memes" and features a variety of militia-wielding rodents.
