For the past three days, there has been an object laying in the road on the interchange where the 85 lets out onto the 101 Northbound. It looks like a bit of twisted gray rag and it's lying there in the rain. Today, traffic was unusually slow, so I got a good look at it as I inched past. It's the jawbone of some smallish, horsey animal. An ass? A mule? It's broken in half down the middle, and the halves are laying at almost right angles to each other, like two skeletal asses in profile looking in different directions.
