Discovering the Relevance of Words
I think my car has become a true death machine. In the near three weeks we’ve been on this tour, I believe the count for dead bugs has just reached over 10,459,762. The splatter and remnants and unwashable torn body parts tell a story of just over 5,500 miles, but it leaves me with a few questions as well.
Where do bugs go when they die? I’m an atheist, so I will assume that they simply hit the car, and life ceases to exist. But do bugs believe in a higher power? Are there varying religious beliefs amongst the different bug cultures? Do they pop into bug synagogue on the high holy days? Will Mary Moth or Bernie Bee be missed, celebrated, or held as a martyr?
