POOR TURTLE

I was driving, following my guy in his car loaded with stuff we're bringing from the condo to the house. About a seven hour trip, and we were maybe half way through it.

When he slowed, so did I. Then I saw a woman in shorts walking down alongside the road in knee-high grass. I immediately thought 'kid run away' but no little tykes in the road so I kept watching the roadside. Just as I got to her, she started up the bank to the road, and I felt a  thump.

Yep. I ran over the turtle she was trying to rescue. I feel guilty and sad but it's done. I am a murderer. Murderess.

Not a good day.
