dang those eyes

The other night, the bathroom was packed with children, so I was brushing my teeth outside. My flashlight caught the eyeshine of something at the edge of the trees. ‘Dang,’ I thought, 'Those eyes look much larger and further apart than I would expect from a deer. What could it be?’ I started cautiously walking towards it.

It was a deer, after all, except MUCH MUCH CLOSER than I realized.
