Like we don't have enough fun at our house ..
I get a call from my wife, who had carpool. Just after she turned toward Jefferson School off of the Cherryville Highway 6 or so deer cantered from her left (near Community Pharmacy) to her right (toward the YMCA) she slowed to a near stop, but one of them slammed into the front left of her van, denting it badly. The deer survived and scampered off into the woods.
Obviously a traumatic experience for my wife and the kids.
She called me and said my 8-year-old was freaking out a little bit. He did, however, provide a priceless moment.
As I tried to calm him down, I told him that this happens all the time and that deer are always running across the streets and stuff.
He said, melodramatically, "DAADDDD, they weren't DEER, they were REINdeer!!!!!"
