I Almost Hit a Deer!

So I am driving Missy and her friend Kylee to horseback riding lesson. About two miles from our home, there is a rural area with dirt roads, and large homes on acreage. I love it back there, and wish we could afford to live back there. As I'm driving, a deer (I guess a doe, since it didn't have antlers?) ran in front of my car. Missy screamed, Kylee laughed, and I'm just grateful I didn't hit it.
I drive a Dodge Magnum, a car not known for its off-roading skills. I'm only going ten miles an hour anyway. So I brake the car, and I swear, this deer stopped to GLARE AT ME before it ran back into the woods.
Only in Florida, we have deer with attitudes.

I'm cracking up at your deer with attitude bit. :P My husband's first car accident involved a deer literally running into him. He was just driving down the road, and suddenly something hit the side of his car. He thought it was another vehicle, but then noticed it was actually a deer as the stunned creature lay on the ground. He thought the deer was dead or at least hurt, but would you believe, the deer just got up and ran away. Crazy creatures deer are!
