Close encounter part II

It's very snowy here. And I'm staying with my sister who lives on a farm inside the forest... Deep dark forest with plenty of huge christmas trees on each side of the un-lit road. Tonight I was driving back from town visiting a friend, climbing up the hills through thick driving snow (for those who can picture that) and quite low visibility. It's a wonderland, it's magic, it's a bit scary and if the car stopped I would lock all the doors and wait for somebody to save me, I can just imagine a scary movie type axe murderer climb out of the forest ready to... whatever. BUT.. today I almost hit a moose in the behind! A moose, the biggest mammal in Scandinavia, and maybe also Europe? Not sure, but its HUGE. And it was standing in the middle of the road, in the dark, showing her, cos it was the lady version, backside and luckily I spotted her in time not to put a very very big dent in my sister's car, and probably a big dent in myself too. It's really dangerous to hit them in high speed, but it sure as hell is really exciting to meet one in the dark in a fairy tale scary movie forest in the middle of the night. Adrenaline kick! Love it. I had to scream small small in the car. While my huge friend disappeared into the dark covers of the christmas tree forest...

Eerie, huh! Of course, you've have guessed that, for somebody like me, the the best line in this piece is 'And it was standing in the middle of the road, in the dark, showing her, cos it was the lady version, backside...'

It is so easily amenable to frivolous interpretation! Yay!

I hope you come back again so you can answer me on how you are able to sneak your comments into my blog without me getting an email about it as I always used to do before? Now they just show up un-announced :-) Adds some excitement to opening the blog of course, but I'd hate to miss a comment of you. Or anyone.

Yngvild, I do not know how it works. You probably have to re-check your settings (they may have changed).
