A Depends Moment.


Do you remember the post I wrote a while ago about meeting a bear while driving down the road near our house?  Well, it just gets better and better.


Last night as Mr LC and I were taking our daily constitutional we happened upon a bear about 50 up the road from us.

Definitely a reenactment.

I turned around and headed for home so fast it would make your head spin.  I did wait long enough to see the bear run off when he heard me screaming talking.  I turned around to see Mr LC head off toward the spot where we saw the bear.  What are you doing? I shrieked while running in place.  I just want to see where he went says Mr LC all calm and crazy like.

Finally (it seemed like an hour)  Mr LC heads toward home behind me.  I turn around again and wait for him to catch up.  Wow he marvels aloud. I didn't know you could run that fast.  Aggghhhh!

Sounds scary! Is that 50 Canadian or 50 American?

Just like a man! I would have been yelling at my husband through an upstairs window! :)

Marian said...

Oh, this sounds like man vs woman all right. My hubby would do exactly that!
We came along a bear...twice, in one evening, but we were driving our car, not out for a walk!
Been a little scared now when I go for my early morning hike...especially since we came across 3 or 4 piles of cherry pit poop along the trail!!!

Imagine how fit you would get if he is there every day!! Was Mr LC slipping him a twenty to keep turning up?

Holy crap, I'm seriously laughing so hard right now. "Definitely a reenactment."

Deb, you are a first class hoot!

Why the heck do we both live in the boon docks? Bears? Wild animals?

A beary close encounter. Loved Annie's comment. Bear boot camp will be the next exercise craze....release the bears and run for your lives! X

Patricia said...

Funny but terrifying - where do you live, to have a bear appear on your walking path? And I thought I had problems with off-leash dogs when out walking! Glad you escaped, and yes, that is Just Like A Man!!!

You make me laugh so much! I can't imagine you running. I can imagine you screaming though! Did I say how much you make me laugh?

I don't exercise eg. walking because exercise is dangerous.

Brilliant Bear run - you could've made the Canadian Olympic team! But I can't imagine how you could laugh about it - oh wait - you screamed!!!!Yes, indeed. (I'm still shaking just at the thought.)

Last night, Our local news was talking about how the brown bear in Maryland has doubled in population. If I can handle Baltimore city.. I can take on a few extra bears. lol.
Kinda makes me not want to camp this fall.. scarrry!

Deb said...

Annie: Now you're making me suspicious.

Patricia: We live on a dirt road surrounded by woods. Dumb, right?

Marian: You are one brave gal. I haven't been out since.

Depends probably wouldn't have been enough for me lol...

Pam said...

I would have run for my life! So glad we don't have bears over here. xx

I don't think Id ever be able to venture outdoors again. Im trying to decide if Mr Lc is brave or foolish...ha Glad the bear was not hungry. xxxx Katherine

We are having a lot of foxes around my home. What about an exchange? Three foxes for a bear? We people who live on dirty roads in the middle of nowhere are the best.

Stacey said...

I would love to see a bear in person but would probably run right with you. :)

That's scary Deb! My hubby always jokes if we see a bear, he doesn't have to be faster than the bear, just faster than me. That's quite a man, huh?
