I saw the deer as they entered the backyard. I always get such a thrill to see the whole family romping together. I wanted to get a shot of them as they grazed on the hedgerows around the side of the house.
I grabbed my phone and ran out the back door. I had not gone more than fifty feet into the yard when my feet tripped on the anniversary gift that I had bought for my husband, Charlie: a group of glass animals. Being so forgetful these days, I hadn’t remembered that they were there, and I was the one who placed them!
I screamed as I went down, and the deer ran toward the horizon, frightened by all of the noise. Nothing seems to hurt as much as self-inflicted pain.
As I entered the house, I looked at my arms and legs, and it appeared as if someone had assaulted me! When Charlie found me later, I implicated that it was all his fault for not moving those stupid animals. But, of course, it wasn’t his crime at all!
