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?
