The thing about shining for deer

The thing about shining for deer is that your husband probably won't convince you until 11:30 at night that you will absolutely drop dead from insane jealousy if you don't go "shining" with him.

The thing about shining for deer is that what seems to have the potential to be the only the cheapest and most romantic date of the year will most likely trigger the onset of your husband's marriage crippling case of Spotlight Micromanagement.

The thing about shining for deer is that if you've seen more than one M. Night Shyamalan movie, you may find yourself pleading and promising things to your amused husband, if only he will drive away from that corn field....wind rustling.....56 pair of deer eyes glowing....nature becoming angry at your presence....

Holy crap, what the heck is shining for deer. I'm terrified and I don't even know if I know what you're talking about. Like shining a light in the dark on deer???? Scary. Creepy. No way.

Knowing how much you like word games, I should shine a light on a questionable word..."triggor"? Were you referring to a "small fluffy dinosaur that has nothing to do." (http://www.treasureearth.com/product_info.php?products_id=38) It might kind of fit this activity of "shining for deer". Love your writing. Reading this blog is what I do when I don't have anything to do. ;-)

Tidbit. Stuart Little? The one with the mouse and the guy from House? (I'm a regular Dr. Seuss.) Yeah, that is an M. Night Shyamalan movie. Seriously. IMDB it.

Heather.....my husband might be a redneck......
Yes, His dad had a special spotlight that they used to shine into fields late at night to see the deer. Kind-of fun once or twice, but in my book, once you've seen 56 deer you've seen em all. Creepy? Very!!!

Dad, thanks for drawing attention to my spelling error. I can't stand spelling errors! Saw a guy at a gas station today wearing a shirt that said "Drink like YOUR Irish." I was tempted to run him over.

Kim, NO WAY!!!!????

Shining for deer...isn't that a poaching practice?
