Flashback Friday

Stealing a note from Nancy's book....or blog..., here's my Flashback moment.

As a senior at BYU, I lived south of campus. Everyday, I would walk to school, which really wasn't very far and as such, was normally fairly uneventful. One morning, however, I saw a guy, who was talking on his cellphone, hit a deer. Being close to the situation, I managed to hear the cellphone conversation.

"Dude, I just hit a deer."

"No, I was walking!"

Seriously, this guy was walking up the path on the south campus hill (often called rape hill) and was talking talking on his cell, completely oblivious to his surroundings. A deer stepped out of the bushes and started walking across the path. Neither was aware of the other. Biped walked into tail end of quadruped, knocking the deer on it's rump and sending the young man staggering backwards. The deer took off running as the guy caught his balance. Then I heard the one end of the exuberant cellphone conversation. I seriously think that is one of the funniest situations I have ever witnessed.

I almost got stampeded to death on that same hill, I'm quite sure. I just stood there, dumbstruck, while deer bounded all around me.

I don't remember you guys telling either of these stories!

Holy cow (er ... deer), that's awesome! I wish I could have been on the other end of that phone!
