Smart Arses

I started reading I am the Messenger, by Markus Zusak, today, and within the first few pages I found a quote that I love and is oh so true!

"All my friends seem to be smart arses.  Don't ask me why.  Like many things, it is what it is," (p. 7).

This describes my family and friends so well.  We all pick around and make jokes, but we all love each other.

In other news...
Today, as I was leaving my mom's work place {after eating lunch with her}, a goose ran out in front of me!  It quickly turned around and waddled back off the road, but when it got back into the grass, it turned around and looked at me like I was an idiot!  {What a dumb arse!}

{You see, I love animals very much.  I would never hurt or harm an animal unless it was dangerous.  BUT, some animals seem to have a death wish.  I like to say that some of them try to commit "suicide by Kayla."  Yep!  As I am driving along, many animals dash out in front of me, or just sit in the middle of the road.  So far in the past 6 months or so, a deer, a couple of rabbits, several squirrels and birds, a goose, and even some dogs and cats have blatantly jumped out in the road in front of my car.  Unfortunately, not all of them were as lucky as the goose!}

{Don't forget to swing by my About Me post, and ask me some questions.}

I hate when animals do that.

A cat and at least 2 birds have died because of me. :( It makes me feel so sad! I always try to stop/swerve out of the way, but sometimes it just isn't possible!

I got a bird this spring. First one I've hit with the car in quite a while. I hate killing things. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. My alphabet is at
