A Corpse in the Middle of the Road

While traveling out of town early this morning, well before dawn, and while on a dark lonely 2-lane highway (I know; it already sounds like a country song, but it's not), I found myself suddenly being forced to come to a full stop. Due to a large truck in front of me, I couldn't see what the reason for the abrupt stop was, so I sat there patiently.

Soon traffic was diverted into the oncoming lane by flag men from the fire department. It looked like an accident. As I inched my way by, I could see a body laying there motionless in the middle of my lane. It hadn't even been covered yet. Poor guy. It must have just happened, as the police were not even there yet.

The vehicle involved in the accident was pulled over to the side, with obvious front end damage. The driver seemed rather shaken. It's not every day (thankfully) that one sees a corpse just lying there in the middle of the road.

Needless to say, I was alert for the rest of my business trip.

Oh, but that poor … deer.

😁 🙈 🙉 🙊 😉

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I didn't have any helium balloons with me.
