I went out this morning to catch the bus to work. As I waited at the bus stop, a deer came up next to me. I didn’t say anything at first. Not because it was a special moment and I was afraid to disturb it, but I’m socially awkward. Spoken words often betray me.

The deer said, “Dammit, I wish I’d gotten here earlier. I’m running late. How much longer till the bus comes?”

I said, “Um, I don’t know, I hope, well…you know…soon.”

A few minutes went by. The deer said, “This is bullshit. I’m walking.” The deer went on its way.

The bus came a few minutes later. I got on the bus. We passed the deer. The deer seemed really angry and yelled something at the bus.

I felt badly for the deer. I think I’m too sensitive.
