writing about road kill...again.

Driving to gymnastics setup at 10 PM-ish, I saw something crossing the street. I slowed down...and saw a cat. Right in the middle of the road. And then something in front of it moved. And the cat darted toward it. And I stopped the car completely. It was a mouse.

The cat contemplated....follow the mouse and die? Or stop. While it thought, I slowly moved around Tom and Jerry.

This is the first time that I have ever actually seen a cat chasing a mouse.

In my headlights.

I get a bit of joy out of that.

That seems like it should be an omen of something...
