Ok, we are deep into deer hunting season around here.
And just in case I didn’t notice that the men in this area have all suddenly grown full on beards and taken to driving ten miles an hour down the roads dressed in camo head to toe with their orange hats on their dashboards and their faces smashed against the windows of their pickups, I would like to present to you how I have been made well aware of the season in my quiet little corner of the world…you know, in case I had no idea:
First things first, I am reminded in my bathroom when I reach for my wedding rings in my pretty little soap dish.
Good morning sunshine.
I am reminded when I go to get dressed and am shocked that husband has indeed hung up his hunting pants. Nice and neatly might I add.
I guess he respects the camo.
I am reminded in the entrance to our house when I go to greet a knocking UPS man.
Cause nothing says “Welcome to our home!” like a gun and a case of camouflaged beer.
And no you’re eyes are not fooling you, that is camouflaged beer. And I am reminded once again of my place in this world when I find it in my fridge:
“Cold as a mountain stream and as refreshing as its name….”
Or don’t find it in my fridge… I know I put it in here somewhere…maybe near the not-so-fresh-anymore half and half and coffee creamer. If only it weren’t so cleverly disguised…
Oh there it is! Phew, I was getting thirsty for that cold mountain stream.
Good thing Busch added a little blaze orange or I would have died of thirst…or shot it! Oh, I could have accidentally shot it.
And I am reminded on my evening commute as the radio plays the following ballad…
…and when I slam on my brakes while this creature looks for an quick escape from the sausage factory:
And I yell: “RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!”
And he screams: “I AM RUNNING LADY! I AM RUNNING! I CAN’T RUN ANY FASTER! SSSHHHHIIIIITTTTT!”
Then, taking lessons from the Busch can, promptly puts on his camo vest and disappears into the brush.
Now, let’s test out your sportsman skills and see if you can spot him in the photo above.
Winner gets a case of camouflage beer….
….that is if I can find it….
Good luck hunters. There’s only a few days left of this blessed season!
In case you needed a reminder.
