I was driving along yesterday, minding my own business. I was on a highway in a forest, not too far from the city, but there was little evidence of human habitation nearby – other than the highway I was on, of course.
To my right, maybe 100 metres from the pavement, in the grass in front of the trees, I suddenly spotted a deer. Now, deer are often seen along this stretch of road, but I have not often been the person who has actually seen one. But this was my turn to see a deer! I was rather pleased. I was one with nature!
Then I realized what it was doing. It was squatting and peeing. For a rather long time, too. As it peed, it gazed about, seemingly without a care in the world. I was stunned. I had no idea that deer squatted to pee. I think it was a female, judging from the lack of antlers, but what the hell do I know about deer? I’m a city girl!
I didn’t take this photo, obviously, but this is pretty much exactly what I saw!
