...that we ran over a deer last weekend? Yep, on the way to the movies no less.
There we were, driving along Bangerter highway when it happened. Albert was driving while I was blabbering away, raising my voice in an attempt to be heard over the blasting music.
Rap music no less.
(Sorry, that's two "no lesses" in like four sentences, what does that phrase even mean anyway?)
Up ahead, Albert noticed a car oddly parked on the side of the road and a few cars touching their breaks. Then the car directly in front of us swerved to the right at which point we saw it, lying directly in front of us, a huge buck lying in the middle of the road, antlers pointing straight up.
Albert quickly assessed the situation and realized that we would not be able to swerve out of the way seeing as there were cars on either side of us. At first glance, I thought it was a pile of wood but that thought quickly changed when Albert said,
"Hold on, WE'RE. ABOUT. TO. RUN. OVER. A. DEER."
I grabbed the OS (Oh Shit) handle and braced myself for impact. I then heard a clunking sound as the buck's antlers passed underneath my feet.
And then it was over.
We had just glided over the buck with no problem at all. I should inform you that we were driving the Hummer so Albert was pretty confident that we would run right over the poor guy.
"Something definitely flashed there!" I said, still gripping the OS handle.
"Do you mean your life flashed before your eyes?" He smirked.
"Um something like that. I don't know what, but something definitely flashed!"
"Oh Poob." He said rolling his eyes. (He seems to do that a lot, I think he should get his eyes checked or something.)
"I felt his antlers under my feet!" I shuddered.
At this point we were both excited feeling indestructible and thinking we were pretty hot stuff for being alive at that moment.
I should have realized that the Buck was no big deal, during the winter Al constantly runs the Hummer through huge snow banks on the side of the road just because he can. And now he wants to sell it? I don't think so.
