As I pulled into my driveway this evening, I was rather startled to see a large deer standing at the crest of the tiny hill that marks the end of our property. It watched me pull up. It watched me park. I watched it watch me sit there watching it. Finally, I got out of my car. Still, the deer had not moved. There it stood, perhaps ten or twelve feet away, as I got my bags from the passenger side of the car (this entailed me moving closer to the deer), then back around to fetch the Trader Joe's bag from the back. Three other deer meandered through the winter-bare trees off to my left. At last, I said, "Well, I'm going in now." The deer flicked its tail, then joined its herdmates in a slow amble away.

I. Love. Living. Here.

I went to boarding school for a year. Once, at duskish, I was walking to my room, and I looked up on the path ahead of me to see a HUGE BUCK. We both froze. We stared at one another for about 20 seconds, (which, I might add, is an eternity to be three feet away from a buck that size) then we both backed up, turned around, and ran in opposite directions.

Yours sounds cuter than mine.
