I've Got An Idea
Let's just erase Wednesday and start over.
After I published yesterday's post, I checked my email before disconnecting, and saw the following Subject line from my husband's work email address:
Oof. I opened it and read
Oof. The armory phone number was busy, so I paced up and down hitting redial until someone answered.
My husband said he was driving to work in the early-morning darkness, and he braked for the first four deer, only to hit the small straggler that came running trying to catch up.
Doesn't look like much, does it? But you can see the hood is crumpled in front and sprung by the windshield and the plastic bumper is cracked. One of the headlight mounts is cracked. Thank goodness the deer didn't hit the windshield. And for insurance. And that the deer was a small one, smaller than Ajax.
I want to talk about something else now.
What I've Been Doing (and Should Be Working On Right Now)
Drawings and text for the netmaking class I'll be teaching Saturday at the Society for Creative Anachronism's St. Valentine's Day Massacre XXXIV.
(This would be the Midrealm's St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Kalamazoo, Michigan, not to be confused with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre happening Sunday in the Barony of Politarchopolis, in Canberra, Australia, or the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in April in Florida.)
I've got stage-fright butterflies already.
