Ran Over a Tumbleweed. 2006-02-13 22:18:21


Well it was my typical Monday today. I get up, grab a shower and eat some breakfast before I headed for school. It seemed like just another trip to a place I'm getting less motivation to go to again.

Today's even was nothing major, but it was certainly different.

I was heading across the railroad tracks that signify the end of my town and the beginning of our neighboring town, Gladstone. I had crossed through those and drove down the main street.

I keep on going when I get to the part that leads uphill and towards the junction to where I end up turning right to drive to Burlington, Iowa where I go to college at.

Well I was making my way uphill, when there's something up ahead on my side of the road. I couldn't tell what it was from the distance I was at, but as I got closer, I was able to determine what it was. . .

It was a tumbleweed.

It was a pretty windy morning out, so I'm not surprised that a tumbleweed managed to find its way into the road. Not even thinking about it, I just drove right over the damn thing. I looked in one of my side mirrors and saw how flat it was after running over it.

So yeah, I ran over a tumbleweed. Whoo.

Are you sure it wasn't a helpless animal?

Cuz tumbles weeds don't go *squish* just to give you a heads up...

It was probably on its way to some important awkward or silent scene.
Ah well. Just goes to show: Look both ways before crossing.

Do you not see a lot of tumbleweeds in Illinois or something?

I sometimes see some since I live in a Southern California desert city.

I ran over a person.

It was windy.

I saw some when I went to California.

I have heard of picking them up but running over one? Oh my.

I know it wasn't an animal. It didn't go squish. It just kind of flattened out. Hell, for all I know, it may have gotten right back up and rolled away. Those things are tricky little fuckers.

Haha. It was looking for work in a country western movie. He was on his way to becoming a star. He never saw it coming, and he was rundown in quite possibly the prime of his career.

It was eithe him just trying to cross the street to get back home, or he was just practicing for the big scene.

I probably would've if I had some duel appropriate music playing in my car. I don't think the Gorillaz was going to cut that. Besides, he looked like he was having fun just sitting there in the road.

There's not too many that roll around here. We always seem to get a nice influx of them around the summer time. It does get pretty hot around here on certain days. If it's hot and windy at the same time, I'm going to have to keep a lookout for one.

He's not going to blow away, unless you offer for him to.

I'm the exact opposite way. I've ran them over, but never actually picked one up. I guess I'd rather let them blow to wherever they're destined than pick them up and destroy their chances of traveling all over the country.

Hell yeah. I don't know if it was a successful one or not, because it wasn't in the road when I came home on the same road. I might be in trouble if he reported me. :O

Zerok's probably right. You just destroyed this up and coming star's career. Oh well, a tumbleweed in the midwest is like a handjob in Hollywood-- $10 in a motel or half off at a red light.

wait, what?

Oh god, I have to tell a story behind the word tumble weed now.
One day i got UBBER high. I don't get high much, but that day, weeeee...gooooone. and I was drivng with two friends, the one driving turns to me
" Hey...Sam....Tumbleweed"
*Intensive stare*
Now Im thinking to myself, IM CONVINCED he meant to say something else
10 minutes later of being confused, I turn and say
"Dude..Do you mean..Dumbledor? Like the dude who dies "
"...ahaha..WHAT!?"
So now we are laughing so hard, we can't control ourselves, and I'm hyperventilated and crying, and I'm trying to explain my gasps of air wtf I just said and why. And then I realized, I forgot how to say tumbleweed, so I started to call it tugweed ( No clue what that is) and I thought to myself, wtf? That isn't right at all...But I cant remember the right word. OH WELL.
I think I almost pissed myself laughing that day. Good ol' tumbleweed.

A couple thanksgivings ago I hit a tumbleweed as big as tall as my sedan. It left thorns all over the grill and sunroof rubber.

Bizzare.

I've never even seen a tumbleweed before, let alone run one over with my car. I miss so much of the world living where I do. Seriously, my life will never be complete until I see/run over a tumbleweed.
