Deer Over the Tail Lights

Unrelated to my previous post (except maybe philisophically), I saw a dead stag's head hanging out of the trunk of a car heading south on I-190 in Massachusetts yesterday night. It inspired my gag reflex more than any sense of awe, and I realized again just how important context is. A deer munching on your perennials out back tells a whole different story than a head lolling out of a half-open trunk, ready to impale the next tailgater.

I felt oddly vindicated. Nothing is as awesome as it seems.

No thing is as awesome as it seems.
It's the context that inspires awe. Or gagging.

Rt 2? No kidding. Because that's where we actually saw it. Binky's navigational skills aren't as fine tuned as her writing. "I-190, Rt 2? Who knows. All I know is it was paved and had lines."
