I'm never walking alone again. Well, I'm never walking alone again in early fall. The freakin' deer are everywhere. Just the other day I had creepy deer stalking me on my walk. If you missed it you can read about it here.
Today I was taking an early walk. I was on my up this big hill and thinking to myself that there was no way I would see any scary deer today. Then it happened.
There was a fork in the path and I wanted to go down the left fork because that makes for a much longer walk, but there were two freakin' deer staring at me. This time they weren't off the trail looking at me from the trees, they were in the middle of the path.
I don't know why, but deer freak me out. I always assume they are going to charge at anything they see. I feel that way because they always seem to be running into people's cars.
Anyway, I really wanted to go down that trail, but these deer were not moving. When I saw the deer the other day I just kept hauling ass past them because they were just so creepy with their vacant black eyes. (Shudder) Today I really wanted to go down the trail they were blocking so I just stood there for a minute trying to shoo them. Seriously, who tries to shoo wild animals? Me, I guess.
Well, that didn't work. Not in the slightest. So, I took the right fork and had a shorter walk, but I think I'm over nature for a few days. I'll just do extra cardio at the gym.
I've also decided that this is happening because I'm quiet when I walk by myself. I have no reason to be hoopin' and hollerin' while I'm walking. When I walk with Janelle we are loud and we have dogs with us. When I walk with Kelly we are really loud, and that's because we dont' know how to be quiet. I think when I walk alone I'm going to carry pots and pans to bang around to let all the wild life know that I'm coming.
