This morning I was driving Chi to school when several deer crossed the street in front of us. I poked Chi in the arm to get his attention and said, “OOO, look, deer!” gesturing in the general direction of said deer. Chi, way more excited than the event warranted, looked up and around until saw the deer. His eyes followed them until they disappeared into the woods along the road and then he exclaimed, “I’ve never seen an ALIVE deer before!!” I all but stop the car in utter disbelief before I ask, “…uh, seriously?” Chi says, turning his attention back to his game, “Well, yeah, I only see them dead on the bus.”

And for some reason? I couldn’t stop laughing.
