Oh my gawd!!!!! I got the sh*t scared out of me today. Okay, so I was talking my dog for a walk and I just happened to look into a field behind the woods about a mile down from my house. I saw something black out of the corner of my eye. I looked and saw a BEAR!!!!!! And here's me It actually saw my dog and me too! It stood on its hind legs for a few seconds, then made it's way back into the woods. I was SOOOOO scared. My dog didn't bark, thank goodness, but what really scared me was that it stood up on its hind legs when it saw us. I'm guessing (hopefully) it was trying to catch our scent. I was so scared I couldn't move, which is good I guess, because I didn't run, which apparently kicks them into hunt mode (don't wanna do that...) After I saw it went back into the woods, I took off, making sure it wasn't following me. I took out my cell and called my parents, and told them the story(I always bring my cell on a walk just in case) while I was jogging, and dragging my poor puppy behind me. There's an image for ya. And meanwhile, I pass this lady who's out in her yard, and she looks at me like I'm nuts. It was quite the adventure anyway. So you see, ladies and gentlemen, that's what happens when you live in the middle of nowhere, in hick town.
