I HIT A TURTLE!! I was driving to church on Sunday morning, and I thought I saw a brown paper bag in the road, but as I got closer, I realized it was a turtle. I was on a stretch of road going uphill with limited visibility, but I tried to swerve a little to avoid it. Did you know that a turtle makes a very distinctive "ka-THUNK" sound as you drive over it? I only heard/felt one wheel go over it, but I had no idea if it was alive or not. I felt AWFUL!
After church, I made a point of going home the same way, because I had to know if it was dead. I figured if it was, it would still be in the road. But it was gone! So it didn't die (and please, don't ruin my dreams of a somewhat-pissed-off-but-not-dead-turtle walking away from this!). I was happier.
That was the first live thing I've hit since I started driving. I didn't like the feeling. I don't want to do it again.
