5.1.2010: day 66

As I was walking to my car, I almost stumbled over this little guy. I talked to him for a few minutes, and told him this was no place for a box turtle to hang out. He just eyed me. So, I picked him up, told him I wasn't going to hurt him (he hid anyway), and moved him into the yard. By the time I got in my car to leave, he had disappeared.

It must have been an animal sort of day. Later, I helped a friend move some stuff from one apartment to another. He had a deer-like, antelopish animal head that I conveniently packed in a little hamper with a million plastic bags as cushioning so his ears wouldn't break off. Closing the lid, I realized what a strange and surreal sight it was, and had to take a photograph. After I moved the taxidermied dead thing, I checked him out and caught myself asking aloud, "Did you survive?" He just eyed me.

  2. Nope. Not anymore. Creepily alive looking though, i'n it?
