I Fell For It Every Time

As I said the other day, I spent a few days at my sister a-ster's house during April vacation.  Since I rarely go away, people always think it sounds exotic that I went to my sister's, so they always want to know what I did.

And I never have anything normal to say.  I just say "nothing, really" because that's what I do when I go there.  And I like that.  I do nothing, a-ster cooks because she likes to do that, and then I come home.  And now that l-ster is on the scene, I play with her while a-ster makes my meals.

Why would I bother to go anywhere else?

Where they live, there are a lot of deer.   Like so many deer, it's a nuisance.  I'm still pretty amazed by the herds of deer that we see and the way they dart out into traffic.

This time, I only saw a couple of deer one evening when I was walking.

 But this thing?  I saw it no less than 15 times a day and every time, I'd think "oh wow, there's a deer right next door!"  EVERY. TIME.  For 4 days.  Sometimes, I'd be in the yard, and turn around and see it and think it was real even though 10 minutes before, it was fake.

  1. It took me months to get over it. Especially since it looks directly into the living room.
