It happened four days ago.
I was uncharacteristically running ahead of schedule that morning; which allowed me the extreme pleasure of driving into work on nearly deserted roads.
As I turned from the highway into the suburbs, a flash at the corner of my right eye caught my attention. A golden-yellow blur was rushing from the grassy clearing and was on a direct course to cross my path. Believing it to be a Retriever or large Labrador leaping in great strides, I slowed to avoid a collision.
But as I approached, I gasped. It was a deer. A very large and majestic Doe.
Since there was no one else around, I honked in short bursts to gently warn her. She came to an abrupt halt right at the side of the road in front of me; with just meters separating us, we stared at each other as three yearling does appeared from nowhere to gallop up and stand behind her.
The blogger in me yearned to pull out my camera, but as it was pitch black outside I didn't want to scare the four beautiful creatures. Instead I sat and admired the pack as they blinked and padded the ground. Regretfully I slowly continued on to work.

With a huge smile, I couldn't help but think it was going to be a good day.
Then about four hours later, I happened to win tickets to this weekend's very important Blue Bomber football game:
Yup, my lucky number just to happens to be 4.
