    Dear Deer...i'm Sorry

    Dear Deer, I feel horrible and disgusted as to what happened today. You appeared out of the blue and there you went.......Looking in my rearview mirror, I hoped you would get up and run into the woods unharmed. But, instead, I was tramatized at the sight of seeing you run toward...

    November 7th

    Driving to work, I hit a deer with my car.... I cried and cried. I totaled my car. I had glass in my pockets - it was everywhere. The worst part was the lack of support that I got from some people. NO hearts. Stupid jokes about deer steaks. It was a horrible experience...

    I Killed A Deer With My Truck

     Still numb, I don't know why.It was a long day, today, and I wasn't feeling well--I think it’s the beginning of the flu. (I usually get a flu shot every year and luckily, as a result, I have not had the flu in years, but this year, the year in which I discovered my...

    It Happened So Quickly!

    It was after nine p.m. on a pretty boring stretch of highway. I was talking to my 12 year old son, when suddenly out of nowhere came two deer. I hit the brakes, and managed to miss the first deer. The second one looked at me from the other lane as if debating whether it should...

    I was on my way home tonight

    and I came over a hill travelling at about 45 MPH. As soon as I seen the family of deer in the middle of the road, I slammed the brakes, pushed in the clutch, and pulled up on the hand brake. There was no way to swerve. I hit one as I was squealing to a stop and hit it at about...

    Ruined Car And A Free Dinner

    I open one eye as my alarm goes off, barely cognoscente of my surroundings. The floor happily jumps up to greet me as I roll off the bed, it's time for school it's hard embrace seems to say. Groggily, I walk to my closet and put some half clean clothing on. As I pull my shirt...

    All At Once

    I grew up in the country.  Hitting animals was just something that happened allot.  I don't know what the deal is. I think they lie in wait then jump out to scare you hoping you'll crash or something.  But I was lucky.  I never hit anything in all my years of driving...Till a...

    Not with my car but with my bicycle!

    I was on a rather hilly bike trail. As the song says "I was going down a grade making 90 miles an hour" there was a blind curve at the bottom of said curve, there she was, she wouldn't move and I couldn't stop. It wasn't pretty. Fortunately I wasn't hurt and neither was she but...
