Another Raccoon and the Coffee Battle

I had just gotten on 2A when I noticed the cars ahead of me were swerving out of the way of something in the road. When the cars had passed I noticed it was a poor little raccoon twitching and in obvious pain in the middle of the road.

Given my last experience with a raccoon I’m all too aware how little good it does to try to call anyone for help. Is it bad I hope someone put it out of it’s misery? How many dying animals am I supposed to see in one lifetime? So far I think it’s been 2 raccoons and one squirrel.

This doesn’t count the time I ran over a raccoon with my CRX and I came back to see it get up and run into the woods. CRX’s aren’t much more than a go-cart.

Again I also really tried hard to not get any :coffee: this morning but given I nearly drove off the road a few times falling asleep I figured no coffee wouldn’t help my health much if I drove off a bridge :dunno: So I pulled over and got myself some coffee purely to keep my eyes open for the rest of the drive.
I can’t decide if Desperate Housewives is getting better or getting worse, I think it’s getting worse but I’m still into it. I don’t know why I still watch to be honest.

Given that Watchdog really loves me and Oogled Kevin today and that Jake has a new movie out it got me thinking…they need to do a movie together! Should I start a petition or what? Next on my list is for Angelina and Scarlett to make a movie with a love scene 😉

    I know what you mean, it hurts me inside to see critters in pain because they didn’t know enough to stay away from the street. Many years ago I was vacationing in someplace rural and there was a chicken crossing the road. Unfortunately there was no joke here. A car sped past and smashed part of the chicken, not enough to kill it because it was flapping valiantly to get off the road, but smashed enough to make it stuck to the road. It was the most awful thing I’d seen in a long time.

    I am right there with you on that Angelina/Scarlett thing. Except I’d swap Angelina for… uh… just about anyone.

    Joefish – Well then I won’t share her with you :tongue:

    The deer on the side of the road get me every time. I know it’s unavoidable sometimes, but I can’t help but remembering we took their homes away from them, not the other way around.:(

    I hate dead animals on the road. Ew. Gross and sad.

    Janet’s hit the nail right on the head, the animals don’t have homes or very little now becase we rip down their homes for our homes, businesses, etc. Sucks :/
