near miss

Bunnies, squirrels, deer - all cuddly Friends of Bambi. They're also all common roadkill. There are certain animals you expect to see in the road and others that you don't.

Yes
Raccoons
Possums
Dogs

No
Whales
Bears
Platypi

Anyway, you get the point. Also very unexpected was the ENORMOUS Falcon that I almost drove head-on into this morning on my way into work. This thing was huge. Big wing span, huge body, and it flew very quickly at my car only to swerve and miss me by about a foot.

Pretty scary.

That happened to me right by our house, too! Only it was on my way back home, right next to our exit.. this enormous bird of prey just appeared out of the trees and flew right in front of my car.

Was it Blue Falcon? Did you see Dog Wonder?

I think the bears and platypi may depend on where you live. But whales, no.

You barely know that bit. It's "and I cannot lie."

EmoRiot said...

"you are hearing me talk."

Run like a leopard who's fast and and can run and leaps at the sound and the sight of us.

What was Ry's lyric for that song? Something about "leopardy light" ...
