What is the Real Minnesotan Driving Experience?
I'll give you a hint: it involves a deer.
It is not hitting a deer on the interstate going 70 mph. Anyone can do that. It is not hitting a deer on a back country road, I mean, that's where deer live... in the woods. No, the Real Experience is getting hit by a deer while in a moving vehicle in a residential area. Did I actually hit the deer? Yes, but if milliseconds had passed, the deer would have hit the side of my car full on. I was almost t-boned by a deer.
Are you happy, Minnesota? I've been driving for 7 years now and never hit a deer. I decide to move and *BAM*.
Well, it could have been a lot worse. Things happen. Accept it; embrace it, and move on.
