what is the deal?!

team,
After my last post, even more death has come my way.

Yesterday morning while loading up in the car at 5:25ish a.m. on the way to seminary, I hear a big thump thump under my car. Mind you, I hadn't started it yet, thankfully, and I was like, "oh no, there is a rat or something stuck in my car's tail pipe (a few Saturdays ago I was listening to NPR Click and Clack on Car Talk...they are hilarious, and there was a girl who had a mouse epidemic in her car...tons of baby mice everywhere in the ceiling and EVERYWHERE! and she parked her car outside, just like me...just thinking about it makes me want to SCREAM!) So, naturally I think I have a billion mice/rats in and under my car.


No, actually, it was a teeny tiny puppy. AGAIN, my next door neighbors! Under the car, luckily I got him out from under the car, but sheesh! I could have killed it! Puppies don't belong under cars! Close call.
Fast forward to later that day, I took my lunch break around 3:00 p.m. (i know, not good), and went to my little bench in the middle of this grassy area in the shopping center. I had sandals on with exposed toes (obviously) and, you know, was just walking. Well, I had barely looked down when I was LITERALLY centimeters away from stepping on a dead bird!!! GAG! I love birds, just not dead ones.
PEOPLE, WHAT IS THE DEAL?!?!?? I NEVER have experiences with dead animals or killing or whatever, and it is crazy. If I was a superstitious person, I think I would be going nuts and analyzing WHAT does this all mean?! But, luckily, I'm not. But, definitely considering it. :)

Tell me, is this weird? First the cat, then the near death of the puppy, and then the bird? All within 24 hours??? OOooooooo....(picture me singing a Halloween ghost sound there). Weird.
So, maybe it wasn't a good idea to put nice sweet pictures of these animals up, but I don't like posting all text no visuals...so, there you have it. The cat at the top is the new Halloween black/grey cat. Not too creepy, right?

Melissa this is so weird these dead animals are "stalking" you of sorts. Is someone conspiring to make you a vegetarian? suspect everyone! j/k love the cute drawings :)

quite quite....that is very peculiar. Maybe there is something to be told...have you been mean or abusive towards any animal kind? maybe it's a sign or they're trying to tel lyou something? do do do do (twilight zone)
Ok I just love your sound effects and I wanted to try it out...

Maybe you've been dealing with lots of death lately, but what fun news I just read on an earlier post! WOOHOO Meliss! Congrats and more congrats! I hope you're about over the worst of being sick (and not just from lots of dead things lying around). We're due exactly one month apart! HOORAY! Lots and lots of love, Lindsay (Page) Bradburn p.s. loving your darling blog...

Perhaps you have some bad animal ju-ju about you...like your true feelings for animals are coming out in a very obvious way! Ha! The Halloween charcoal cat is adorable...scary, not at all!
