So. Today was a sad sad day for Kelsey Edwards (me). I killed an animal. A living, breathing, tree-dwelling animal. And I couldn't be more sad about it.
And so after I had realized what happened, I did what any normal person would have done and pulled into the mcgregor parking lot and sobbed my squirrel killing eyes out. and then when i pulled myself together after a pep talk from my sister and hit the road again, i had to stop my car for two ducks crossing the road! SERIOUSLY! what is WITH chatham??
It is a tough world for a squirrel out there, and you gotta get by somehow - ya know?
Just a regular squirrel. Living his life one moment, and smoked by my car and dead the next.
So here is to you.
I hope you are happy in squirrel heaven, and that there are lots of nuts and acorns and seeds that you don't have to run across busy roads at rush hour traffic time in order to obtain.
I won't forget you.
