The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

Oh yea…and one more thing:

Chick forgot one small thing after her high school reunion:  On the way back home we hit a deer….a fawn actually.  Its the 3rd deer I have dispatched to its happy hopping grounds in my lifetime, but the first fawn. 

If it had stayed to the left, it would have lived.  If it had kept running across the road, it would have lived, but NOOOOO. it had to stop dead in the middle of the road ( like they always do) and despite slamming on the brakes, we still hit the thing dead on the license plate at about 40 mph. 

I was sad…very sad. 

But we remembered our Driver’s Education ( how many have DEER ENCOUNTERS in drivers ed?…we did).  Do not veer.   If you do, you will either flip the car or end up in the ditch.  Ya just have to hit the brakes and let the chips fall where they may.

I like venison, but not this way…:-(

Your driver ed lesson on animals in the road sounds like good advice to me, if not just plain common sense. It IS frustrating, though, that these beasts like to place themselves at the precisely WRONG time and place! I once had to Cuisinart at possum—what a sickening sound, a possum taking a carousel ride in my wheel well–ka bump ka bump ka bump ka splat!
