inside looking out

If I were a wild animal, I don’t think I’d want to be in an enclosed area.  But in Parkbridge, deer come in in the morning and leave at the evening.  They spend their days meandering around the park, eating what they can, and sleeping the rest of the time.

I saw this one on the back way home from shopping.  We just stood there looking at each other.  We, as people, personify various animals.  The deer is obviously thinking, “Why is that guy outside of the enclosure?  Doesn’t he know the dangers?”

Reversing that, would the deer be personifying (or, rather, deerifying) me?  The human is obviously thinking, “It’s too bad that fence is there.  I’d like to kill that deer and eat it.”

not yet en route(r)

My new router, the DeWalt 611, is coming.  But when?  I ordered it on Amazon on Sept. 15, 2020, but it apparently still hasn’t left the gate yet – not yet en route.  (En router?  Get it?  Route(r)?)
