night class

I learned two things tonight.

1. Young rabbits that run out into the road will freeze rather than run when faced with oncoming headlights; so you the driver should swerve, rather than jamming on your brakes.

2. I did not and do not have the courage to do the compassionate thing, and run over it a second time.

Update: anyone with half a brain would have realized that there were alternatives - like letting it breathe exhaust from the tailpipe - feel free to draw the obvious inference.

Of course, if you _do_ swerve, that will probably turn out to be the wrong thing to do too. Damage to automobile, driver and passenger(s) is a real possibility.
