I ran some errands on my lunch break today. I was sitting at a red light (the kind that stays red for half your lifetime) and watched a hawk flying. I love hawks – their feathers are beautiful and I like how they screech. Anyway, on such a perfect day like today, I thought to myself how nice it would be if I were a hawk and didn’t have to go to work anymore. It was a great daydream until I noticed the decals on the back window of the pickup truck in front of me. There were silhouettes of ducks, turkeys, and grouse with a message saying “If it flies, it dies.” Obviously a hunter owns that truck. I think hawks are protected in Kentucky…but that pretty much ruined my daydream.
