Take that Bambi!

Tonight I hit a deer - a huge 8 point buck - in my little Mini Cooper. It just leaped over a guardrail and into the front of my car. Deer got away (cop said "he's been taking out cars for 4 years). I was unhurt - though a bit shaken. My car needs body work (though the engine looks fine and I drove it home) - there may be a sensor wire shook loose or something. Sucks. I just made my last payment on it last month. So tomorrow I start dealing with insurance.

Am fucking glad this didn't happen before or over this past weekend. I'm working on a post about that. But right now I think I'm going to go have a relaxing beverage and chill out.

Yikes! Glad you're OK!
We've gotta talk!

An eight-point? Shit, that's practically a moose!

You are lucky. I know people who have had their cars totaled by lesser deer.

I wish you the best with the insurance company...

Wow, I know (even from personal experience) that must have been scary. So glad you (and, hopefully, the deer) are intact. But sorry about the car! I know how much you love the cute li'l thing.
