The same couldn’t be said for me. I sat in the truck in the middle of the road for several long moments before I gathered my wits enough to pull off, then get out and assess the damage. The truck took a $2,500 hit, I’d learn later. But I was lucky — my sole injury consisted of a small cut on my left ear, the result of the moose-shattered sideview mirror sailing in the open window.
Two thoughts came to mind as I leaned against the truck that sunny summer afternoon. The first was, “Well, that was close.” The second was that the moose just might have been nature’s way of telling me to slow down and enjoy the passing view.
And I’ve been doing that ever since.
