CAUTION: Deer Crossing
Oh My Lord!
Tell me why yesterday when I got onto the back road of my campus, a DEER jumped onto the road and then off on the other side??
You don't understand how shook I was.
So I took a left at the light to get onto the back road that leads onto my campus and I had my Destiny's Child 8 Days of Christmas CD on blast.
I started bopping my head to the tune and I started to pick up speed because I had just made a left, right?
When I saw the massive animal jump onto the road standing as high as my Ford Explorer, I almost fainted, but I kept my composure, and I stepped on the brakes with all the might in my size 9 foot.
The deer didn't even look at me, so I didn't get to see what a "deer caught in headlights" looks like--trust me, I'm not mad about that!
When my heart starting pumping again I took my foot off the brake and drove to my dorm very slowly...
When you hit a deer, your whole car is mangled and if I didn't have good sense, I might have swerved and gone into the woods or something.
"THANK YOU LORD", is all I could say.
