Bitterness Saves the Day!

Just kidding. But I was almost killed today while driving home by the most agile deer I have ever witnessed in my life. There I was, a few houses down from my house, minding my own business and indulging a fantasy of telling off someone who offended my friend. When my mind wonders off while driving, I tend to drive slow...really slow...grandma slow. So, all of a sudden, in the middle of my imaginary rant, a huge deer jumps OVER the front hood of my car, only inches a way from smashing through my windshield. You did not misread, the deer did not run in front of my car, but catapulted CLEAR over it. If I was going any faster, there is not a doubt in my mind that the deer would have crashed through my windshield and pierced my brain with a hoof or something. I slammed on my breaks and two baby deer trotted out after their mum. So, while I probably shouldn't have been dwelling on sticking my nose in someone else's business, I think it might have saved my life. Oh, and God in His mercy and split-second close theatrics steered me clear of tragedy, too. :)

ROFL- OK not at the near catastrophe but at the wonderful vivid way you write. I LOVE IT!!

Did that deer have a red nose by any chance? Was a sleigh attached? Just kidding I stopped believing in Santa last month.

Love, Ang :)
