1. Have you ever hit an animal with your vehicle?
Not only have I hit an animal with a vehicle. I also managed to do it with a bicycle. We'll start with the bike incident...
When we first moved to Florida my then 13-year-old sister was not happy to be separated from all her friends in NY so she would "run away" three or four times a week. By "run away" I mean she would be three streets over at a friends house and usually came home by 8 or 9 pm. My mom however had a hard time grasping this and would send me out to find her and bring her home. So one fateful day I hopped on my bike to chase her down. I rode over to her friends house and sure enough there she was. (I was and still am very sensitive when upset!) I started to tell her Mom wanted her to come home and she took off on me. So I start pedaling after her and this poodle runs out of nowhere. I can't avoid it and slam into it with my bicycle. The dog yelped and ran off fine but I was devastated. Inconsolable. Karolina turned back and had to take over the comforting big sister role because I just fell apart. She of course came home after this and I can still claim to be one of few people that hit a dog with my bike. (FYI I brake for squirrels!)
The other animal I hit I can't identify as it was 5am and a dark middle of nowhere road. I'll deduce it was either a raccoon, possum, or armadillo but I was tired and on my way to a 7am class in college so I didn't stop to find out.
