Like Two Ships, Almost Colliding in the Night....

To the bear I almost ran into last night while riding my bicycle home from the bar,

Dear Mr. Bear,

I'm not sure if you have the internet in your lair, or den, or in the forrest at large even, but if you do, I hope you can find your way to my blog and read this letter I am writing to you now. Nothing against you, or bears in general, but why were you just hanging out in the road at night? I almost didn't see you, and I almost ran straight into you. It was my swerving and brake noise that scared you away and made you run into the swamp by the road. I know humans may be encroaching on your habitat, which is cool and all, but I wasn't even on a trail in the woods... I was riding my bicycle home from my favorite local drinking establishment. Anyway Mr. Bear, thanks for not swatting at me with your claws or biting at me with your teeth, that would have totally sucked.
Maturity truly ruled the night last night. You were mature enough to realize that I meant you no harm, and I was mature enough to not scream like a small child when I realized that I was about to run into you. Anyway, thanks a lot, Mr. Bear for not killing me and just walking away. Cooler heads prevailed.

Yours Always,
Ben

How many close encounters with brown bears does that make for you?

You're like an ursine magnet. It must be your prodigious back hair.

It was actually a black bear. I was also wearing black pants and a black jacket so it must have thought I was a mentally superior bear that had learned to ride a bike, so it just got the hell out of dodge.
