Our idea of Valentine's Day this year involved both of us working, Jen teaching yoga, and my hanging out with Peanut. So on Sunday, since Jen was experiencing a slight reprieve from her flu, we decided to hire a babysitter for Peanut and go out to eat.
It was getting towards dark and we had decided to take back-roads instead of the interstate to get to the restaurant. We were chatting about politics, or Peanut, or being sick, when we started catching up to the Mustang we'd been following. After a couple of turns in the road, passing a golf course and a former water park, I saw buck running towards the road, coming from my left and heading right towards the car ahead of us.
In a split second I thought, "Well we're not going to make our reservation because we'll have to stop to see if these people need help we'll have to wait for the police, EMTs, and tow truck for this car not to mention seeing the damage done to the deer who clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time!"
Much to our surprise, as the driver of the Mustang skidded to a stop, the deer bounded over the car. Let me restate that: the deer leaped and cleared the roof of the car. Not the hood, the roof.
Kind of like this, only higher.
It's certainly one of the top ten things I've ever seen. Have you ever had/seen a close call that you were still thinking about days, months, years later?
