This is just a bit too weird. I mean, I am old enough to understand death and things but that doesn’t mean I have to be reminded it exists so often. I was walking home last night rather late, when I noticed this small deer lying down in the snow by the side of the sidewalk. For an instant I hoped she was resting or something, but that seemed like an awfully cold place to be. A little closer and her eyes were open, with this blank stare.

She wasn’t breathing.

By the time I got home and figured out the number (without a computer or a half decent phone book) for the humane society / animal welfare people, they already knew about it.

This is too much, she was definitely just a kid. It’s not fair.
