This is a question Have you ever seen a dead body?

How did you feel?
Upset? Traumatised? Relieved? Like poking it with a stick?

Dead Sheepish?
I remember when I was much younger, A friend of the family. Who I now regard as the closest thing to a dad, used to take us (Me and my Brother) out on trips to explore the ruins of disused WWII airfields ( where I live there are loads of them). So being the impulsive kids we were, we pretty much ran out of the house when He said we were going exploring again. With the sound of my mums voice ringing in my ears saying 'Don't you dare get them dirty!', we dived in his car.

After a longer than usual drive we stopped at this unusual group of hills and got out.
Round the corner we spotted an old Pill-Box and headed straight for it. It was incredible the hills were actually dug out (for storage i assume) and there were tunnels and trenches running between them. Fumbling around in my pockets I quickly came up with a 9V battery and a green LED. It was a torch McGuyver would have been proud of. So into the tunnels we went....
As I was leading the way I strode in to a big dark room (still underground) and stood on a rock. My brother and 'Dad' followed a while later.
Their eyesight is much better than mine and after a while my 'Dad' said 'I don't think you should be standing on that'. Me being at that weird inquisitve age said 'Why?' and shone my torch to the 'rock' I was standing on. Only to find I was actually standing on the carcass of a DEAD SHEEP!!! - It must have been there a while because all the wool was gone and the skin had started to cling to the bones. In the green light of my 'LED-Torch' it looked grim. I didn't dare look for the head. I was freaked out for the rest of the trip and the journey home. Strangely My brother and my 'Dad' found it highly amusing.
