Turtle Tale

I believe I mentioned that Abby was in a car accident a couple weeks ago. She was fine, but her van was broken. It has been in the shop so we have been driving her to her new job at the same place she has interned the last two summers. Yea new job!

I had to work on Tuesday, so Honey and Mousey went and picked her up from work. While on the long drive into the building, Honey stopped and Mousey got out to rescue a softball sized turtle from certain death. She picked it up and gently put it in the grass.

The next day I had to go to the podiatrist, because I have problematic pods, so Honey once again came to the rescue. While waiting for Abby to come out of the building, he was texting this sad tale to Mousey .

Honey: Small turtle on road into Abby’s work…it must have been turtle suicide.

Mousey: There’s really no other explanation. Poor fellow.

Honey: Must have been depressed, couldn’t keep up with his girlfriend.

Mousey: Or work fired him, Abby probably replaced him.

Honey": Maybe the turtle loved Abby, so he kept looking for her car and didn’t see it, he must have thought something happened to her. Goodbye cruel world.

Mousey: So many possibilities but we will never know because the weight of the world was too heavy on him.

Honey: Shell crushing…turtle love forever!

Mousey: So turtle soup for dinner tonight?

Honey: Sorry, just had turtle sushi, nothing left.

Mousey: You don’t love me at all.

Silly old bears!

    That’s cute.

    Bob went to rescue a LARGER turtle from the middle of a road once. When he went to go lift the sides of his shell, his head on his looong neck came out to bite Bob. After a few tries, Bob had no choice but to leave it there. I guess he didn’t want to be saved. As Bob pulled away, he looked in the rear-view mirror only to see a truck drive over the turtle. This turtle must’ve had “turtle hate”. 😦
