I called the police, apologizing profusely on the off-chance that I sent them and the paramedics out there for a false alarm. They reassured me that it was ok, better safe than sorry and all.
The longer I sit here and think about it, the less certain I am it was actually a person... the image is becoming steadily less vivid in my mind. But at the time, it definitely definitely looked like a dead person. I felt a chill of certainty jump through me... I was on the phone with John telling him about the show and I just stopped mid-sentence and said "oh my god".
Is it weird that I was scared to stop or turn around and check? Does that make me irresponsible?
