deer can fly

If you’ve never experienced deer parts flying into your windshield while you’re going 80 on a two lane highway surrounded by trucks, you haven’t lived.

The mini road trip ended with a lovely little ::splat, goosh, splat::—and me not being able to turn on the heat in my Jeep for the last hour. If you’ve never had the joy of having a deer’s parts thrown at the front of your car, let me prepare you. The icky parts that don’t ::splat:: on your windshield end up lodged in your grill, and consequently, your entire car now smells like rotted, roasting deer. Oh. my. god. It’s foul people. If I wasn’t a vegetarian before… whoosh.

About ten minutes after the incident, a cook was on NPR talking about the different kinds of stuffing you can put in a turkey. When he said “venison sausage,” I started laughing so hard I hit my high beams and pissed off the car in front of me.

It’s a truly a miracle that I arrived, 9 hours and 570 miles later, completely unscathed.

My Jeep, however, seriously needs to be washed. There’s hair and goo—it’s revolting.

And before I forget… GOOD LUCK AUGIE! (He leaves for basic training tomorrow.) Come back alive so that I can continue to harass you. :)

  5. I leave at 1400 hours. LOL! I’m already using the terminology, tonight I go to the hotel and tomorrow I’m at the MEPS before I board the plane to luxurious Lackland AFB in San Antonio.

    Thanks for all the support. Bye!
