the story of an invisible girl

I saw a guy this evening, and he was wearing a neon orange hunting jacket.  You know the type, really brightly colored so that it will stand out and the other hunters won't mistake him for a deer.  But along with being orange, it had a black pattern on it.  It was a camouflage pattern, you know, the kind army guys wear in order to blend in with their surroundings.  It took me a moment of looking at it before I realized what a complete and utter contradiction this was!  I mean, come on guys....you either want to be seen, or you don't....right?

Well, if the deer are color blind, it kinda works?

They are... and it does.

So now you know. ;)

I dunno, I'm not convinced. I still think the deer are out there somewhere going, "Hey look, Orange-Guy is back! Let's sneak up behind him and kick him!"

I hav'ta type in the img tags, but it's such habit I don't even notice half the time.

So like... do you actually type in IMG tags in your posts or do you somehow have a shortcut for those graphic smileys?

You deleted the other post, so I responded to something that isn't there!

whoops... I screwed up that one but it pretty much said the same thing.

Yes, I kinda noticed that, judging from the message in the first email I got, and the message I just replied to here

However, on the thought of my smileys, I wish I did have something that would automatically convert :-P into

hahaha! Yes, exactly! The camouflage in the 7-11 was so clever, I could barely pick him out.

I had a friend in high school who liked to wear camouflage pants then go up to you asking, "Can you see my legs?"

There is some belief (no idea if it's groundless or not) that deer are red-green colorblind, so an orange camo jacket fools them. But apparently there is also a belief that although one in ten MEN is colorblind, none of them is a hunter, so orange camo will keep you safe from "friendly fire" in the woods.
