There were squirrel guts all over me and my water bottle. I might have mini-barfed a little. The squirrel looked like a wrung out dishrag. I was about 15-20 miles from home on a hot day. Only had a bent spoke but it was a long ride with squirrel gut coating and no way I was touching my water bottle. 20 years later, I’m still jumpy when I see squirrels in the road.

I figure there's a black mark on my karmic record for the time I ran over a baby goose. It was a race, I was head down and stoking and womp womp...

I felt pretty bad about that.
