My route to school involves curvy rural roads. Today was a beautiful, sunny morning and I was enjoying the drive, listening to my favorite morning show on XM. The guys on The Morning Drive on NASCAR Channel 90 had me laughing out loud, so I was pretty relaxed and ready for the day.
I was probably two miles from school when I saw an animal out of the corner of my right eye. I slowed to a stop and saw that it was a fox with some small animal clenched in its jaws. The fox froze briefly, dropped the animal, and then briskly trotted across the road. I watched it for a moment and then accelerated slowly and continued on to school.
