This morning while driving to work I spotted a turtle crossing the road. Why? Presumably to get to the other side. I pulled over, picked it up, stopped traffic, and carried it across the road to the creek. It looked pretty scared when I picked it up, which is ironic considering that it was in much more danger on the road than in my hands.

I'm not sure why I stopped to help the turtle, but Jessica and I were talking about turtles just a few days ago and I was lamenting the fact that I hadn't seen a single one since moving to Missouri. I decided then that turtles are my favorite reptiles, so when I saw one today I couldn't just let it get flattened by a commuter rushing to work.

I think this answer is sufficient to demonstrate that I'm not a not a replicant.
