I was on my way home from a doctor's appointment this morning and I noticed something strange ahead of me.
A bright yellow county work truck was parked on the side of the road and two men in bright yellow county work vests were standing in the middle of the road.
I hadn't seen any signs warning me of road work but I slowed down anyway since the men were standing in the middle of the road.
I assumed they must be patching up potholes because one of the men had a shovel in his hands and was actively working with it
Then I realized he was scraping something off the road. As I got closer, I saw that he had scraped a large possum off the road and had it in his shovel. (I won't lie. I gagged a little.)
As I passed him, I wondered if he would also be removing the deer carcase that was laying a few miles up the road.
Because that one is going to be at least a three shovel job.
