When Animals Attack!

On my morning run a deer runs in front of me, maybe 12 feet. I am immediately petrified. Why? Because I watch too much "When Animals Attack" on TLC. I look to my left and see two baby deer. OH. MY. WORD. I am in between a mama deer and its babies, I am for sure a goner. (Maybe that's just bear and its babies, but hey, you can never be too safe.) First thought, the whistles people put on the front of their cars to scare deer away. Second thought, make yourself look bigger than what you really are. So I begin sprinting making the most annoying, highest pitch noise I have ever heard leave my body with my arms flailing in the air. I make it to the entrance of my edition. No way back except to cross the deer crossing AGAIN. So, I begin the the screeching, flailing of the arms and dead sprint. Only this time, I'm pretty sure I heard the deer laughing or perhaps it was my neighbors. Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure I doubled my normal calories burned.
