Happy Caturday: Deer-watching edition

Posted by Lissa on August 29, 2009

Lissa:  “That’s funny, Mike.  I looked out the window and for a second I thought I saw a deer.  See that patch of brush, looks like a head attached to a body?”

Mike (looking out window):  “Um, Lissa, there’s a real deer out there!”

No, it wasn’t the patch I was looking at.  That was definitely inanimate plant life.  But Bambi was out there, invisible from my view from the couch, nomming on some greenery.

Bambi in Charlotte

His apartment is in Charlotte, by the way.  It really is.  It’s just that his (tiny little) balcony is at the tail-end of the complex and overlooks a big ol’ forest.  (That, y’know, is the real sound of a Southerner.  It’s not the y’all’s, it’s the big ol’s.  Mike is already making fun of me; as soon as I cross the Mason-Dixon my drawl comes back.)

Happy Caturday!

UPDATE:  Rajah would make this sound while nomming his Bambi Stew:

Thanks Mike!

    I don’t see deer from my couch, but on the way to our malls (plural–15 or 20 years ago, some idiot thought that one mall wasn’t enough to support a town of 20,000…) is a patch of woods about 50 yards wide. We often see deer sticking their heads out there.

      The amazing thing about getting to see them from my couch is that this isn’t in a small town. I’m obviously not in the middle of downtown, but this is in a city of about 700,000 people!
