I learned something on the dark drive home from Hogwarts Tuesday night.
A deer running across the road does not prance like this.
It is simply a silvery brown blur in the headlights.
I didn't even see it coming. If Ernest hadn't seen the first deer run across the road and called out "DEER," I would have hit the second deer for sure. With his warning, I slowed and the deer flashed by me about 5 feet in front of the car.
Funny thing, it was just around the bend from the haunted house...
