Oh! Deer.

I’ve begun to notice these weird deer things on my drive to work lately.

Of course, their leader is hard to miss. He was even standing more proudly until the incredible vientos de Navidad recently blew his head over, snapping his spine in a single burst of wind.
I wasn’t sure what they were at first, but the other day after I went to Migracion, I stopped on the side of the road to take a closer look. Turns out they’re made from a sort of pine sliver thing, and then wrapped with string. I guess they’re for Christmas decorations. I asked my students what they were, these strange animals from the highway between Naranjo and Grecia, and they all said, “For decoration.” But they couldn’t tell me exactly HOW they’re used to decorate.
So, I bought one for my mother-in-law and one for my sister-in-law Toni. They seem to like them very much, so I guess I’ll see what they actually end up doing with them.
Is it just me, or do this remind anyone else of those pictures of the Chinese terra cotta warriors?

  1. What on earth is that monster? I mean, I understand the little ones. My aunt actually has a couple of those (though, Mrs. Q kinda hates them), but the huge one is scary looking.

  2. It was even weirder for the week or so when they had it up mid-assembly. It didn’t have antlers yet, so it looked like the Trojan horse. This becomes even more significant when you consider that it was just down the road from Grecia, which means “Greece” in Spanish, as you all know…
