So I'm zipping along highway 10 this afternoon, class got out a little early and I'm heading out to take my little green darlings home that I've been growing in school. It's time to plant them in the ground, and I don't want to leave them in a hot car all day.
Coming round a curve, I see a strange sight:
A semi-tractor trailer. Just sitting there in the other lane.
My first thought: "Is that idiot waiting to turn left?"
My second thought: "No...his flashers are on. Must be broken down."
At this point I'm noticing the cars that were behind him, driving through the grass on the right--because they can't see around the truck to pass on the left, like they're supposed to.
My third thought: "Not a good place to park that thing, buddy."
Right about this point, I've passed the truck. I spot the driver, about a quarter of a mile behind, walking back to his truck. He's carrying something.
Spare tire? Gas can?
He's carrying, by one foot, a dead wild turkey hen.
So let me get this straight, y'all.
You are on a *highway*. You park a *semi* near a *blind curve* IN the highway. So you can walk back and catch a turkey?! I say 'catch' because it didn't look like it had been hit by a car....
HOW STUPID ARE YOU?
I hear banjos. Hold me.
