I Couldn’t Resist

A text to my brother this past Sunday:

“Happy Easter! Doing anything to celebrate?”

His response:

“Same to you. I went for a bike ride and accidentally ran over a squirrel.”

I couldn’t resist a reply:

“I hope it wasn’t Rocky.”

My sincere apologies to Dan Antion and The Editor (the kind squirrel feeders) and anyone who questions my wacky Bullwinkle sense of humor.

      That would have been an accident of epic proportions, except I would hope that he’d see a moose in time to stop before that would even happen.

      That’s not as farfetched as you may think. I almost hit a deer once on my bike. It really rattled me and I shook on the side of the road for a few minutes before I could continue. It wouldn’t have ended well. I now know the answer to the question that’s always bothered me …. no, you don’t see them coming.

    No apologies necessary. Once the deed is done, you can sympathize or make the person feel worse. Since it’s your brother, the choice is obvious.

    Now, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat 🙂

      Ta da! One rabbit in Dan’s yard…to add to the furry mix. I ran over a squirrel once with my car and felt awful for days, so I would not make the bro feel bad over an accident.

      You are wise, Judy! I like squirrel, as long as it doesn’t climb up my leg looking for food. That freaks me out.

    Squirrels. We have a bird feeder set up. Some days the squirrels let the birds eat there too. There have been times where there are six or more squirrels feeding. And a chipmunk or two.

  3. Poor Rocky! What is it with the squirrel carnage this spring? My hubby came home rather distressed that a red squirrel ran out in front of his car, and it was too late to swerve.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Oh boy! Perhaps the squirrels are confused right now by less people and traffic out in their domain, so they think it’s safe to run and play in the streets. Poor squirrels.

    Better Rocky than Bullwinkle. Of course maybe your brother just had the wrong hat on when he was out riding. 😁

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Those two are probably playing it safe these days by living on the moon and staying away from men on bikes. 🙂

    Oh, no! I never heard of running over a squirrel on a bike! Your brother must be fast! I think Rocky would have flown away.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      My brother is a hardcore road biker, so he probably was going fast. I’m grateful, though, that it didn’t cause him to crash. That would have hurt.

    Glad that you had a spot of humour to tackle the situation.
