I've never hit a squirrel - or anything - before. I always go to great lengths to avoid it. In this particular instance, I saw the squirrel and hit the brakes and avoided it. It ran on, past me into the other lane, whereupon it decided to run back under my car and get hit by the wheel.
Sigh. I know I did everything I could not to hit it, and this squirrel was just apparently suicidal, but I still felt bad. So I called Jamie and talked to her for awhile. ^_^;
Incidentally, anyone remember this icon? Well, it's back!
Happy anniversary, Alli!
