I am not sure exactly what it is about seeing a deer on the side of the road that makes me want to alert anyone within five feet of me. Which is kind of funny because this is Minnesota and there are deer all over the place… but I just can’t resist yelling, “Oh look a deer… right there, did you see that?”
So the other day I was driving in downtown St. Paul with my friend Kristy when there smack in the middle of some one’s fenced-in yard was a little deer. I was so excited… “Kristy look at that….” But then as I looked a little closer I realized IT WAS A FAKE DEER. I really felt cheated… and I sat there wondering what is the mind frame of people who buy fake deer to put next to their gardens. I looked at a few websites where you can buy them… would you believe that there are people who exist who will spend over $900.00 for fake deer. If you don’t believe me see for yourself.
I mean do you find joy in tricking people into thinking that your yard is some sort of animal sanctuary… do you find pleasure in pretending that a hunk of plastic is gracing you with it’s presence each day. I want answers… and I want to know who these people are. Mostly because I am looking for a summer job and I figure if you are willing to shell out hundreds of dollars to look at a fake deer, maybe you could pay me money to take you to see some real ones. I will be excepting cash or credit… NO CHECKS!
