So now that Bugs is driving, I’m noticing more road kill. I don’t know why this is, other than it’s on my mind more. Specifically, I’ve noticed a lot more dead squirrels.
I think the reason I noticed this was their position on the road. Almost everytime I’ve seen one, at least one furry paw has been outstretched to the sky, as though in supplication.
I asked DH what he thought about this observation.
“Don’t they run like rabbits?” He said.
“Huh?” I said,
“You know, front feet together, back feet together.”
“Oh, well, yes, I guess so.”
“So they are mid hop, get hit by a car and thrown over so that their outstretched arms which are mid-hop are reaching to the sky.”
I thought about this for a minute, then started laughing at the thought. Sounds kinda mean, I know. But in the end, I just can’t get too fussed about the idea that one more of my bulbs will be left unearthed.
I really hope there are no PETA people reading this.
