I'm so freaked out right now. Coming home from dinner tonight, I was driving down the highway at 68 miles per hour when I saw brake lights flash on a car a fair distance ahead of me. I assumed there might be a cop car sitting in the turnaround, looking for speeders, so I adjusted my cruise control down to 65. Not two seconds later I came upon a moose standing in the middle of the highway. It was standing in the passing lane, with its head partially in the traveling lane, where I was. I had to swerve to avoid hitting it. If it had been walking or running, or moved forward in any way, I would have hit it, and I'd probably be a dead woman right now. It's true what people say: moose are black at night and you absolutely can NOT see them until you're right on top of them. Holy shit, I'm incredibly freaked out. But clearly my luck is better than I thought it was.
