(no subject)

I just got back from Baker's. On the way there, I saw a brown thing on the sidewalk in front of Burlington Coat Factory. I thought it was a dead leaf since there's a wooden barrel full of flowers next to it, but as I walked closer to it, I saw that it was a dead bat. A dead brown bat, to be specific. He (I assume it was a he) didn't look like he had died violently, he just looked like he had curled up and died. Maybe he was chasing an insect last night and ran into the cement post near it or the wall. I got close enough to figure out what it was and I didn't touch it. I immediately walked into Burlington and told the woman at the customer service desk. She said she'd get it taken care of. As I was walking out, I heard her page someone. I thought she was getting someone to clean it up, but when I walked back from Baker's half an hour later, the poor dead bat was still there. I hope it didn't die of rabies. God forbid some little kid touches it.
