Well, one day on my way to the bookstore, a squirrel ran out in front of my car and, alas, I ran it over. I was devastated as it was the first animal I’d ran over since getting my license. If I remember correctly, Matt arrived to work a little after me, and having taken the same road to get there, confirmed the kill.
Well, later that night, or maybe the next (who knows, it was 10 years ago!), Matt and I were hanging out with Lisa and Erica and perhaps others at my house, and in the midst of the evening, I announced, “I killed a squirrel”. Matt immediately responded with, “Isn’t that a Jill Sobule song?” referring to the 1995 Jill Sobule hit, I Kissed a Girl. That struck all of our funnybones and we all had a good laugh after such a tragic event.
