Comments on: In Which I Ramble on about Death and Nature… http://hornes.org/2007/08/in-which-i-ramble-on-about-death-and-nature/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Jay http://hornes.org/2007/08/in-which-i-ramble-on-about-death-and-nature/#comment-1351 Mon, 27 Aug 2007 16:44:13 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/2007/08/in-which-i-ramble-on-about-death-and-nature/#comment-1351 Peter, great comment.

Now I must set the record straight. I took a plastic bag and manfully used the bag to pick up said squirrel. I then headed for the trashcan with the dead squirrel in the bag. It just so happens that the shortest path between our driveway and our trashcan is through the laundry room and on out the front door via the kitchen and dining room (you see, our trashcan is out front while they replace our alley).

And then, of course, I had to give all the other kids a chance to see the dead squirrel (still in the bag)… so I might have gotten a bit sidetracked. But it’s not like I picked it up in the pooper scooper, walked into the kitchen, and announced I was making squirrel soup.

But I don’t remember him bringing a carcass into the house, at least not one as big as a squirrel. So sorry!
