Deer Hunters

Deer hunting season is approaching. Orange is everywhere, hanging from clotheslines, draped over trees, hung on fences. Got to be outside long enough to get the stink of people off of them. I shudder to think how cold those clothes are when the hunters put them on in the early, early morning. When I go to town, I pass orange everywhere. One of our grandchildren once thought that deer grew on trees because that’s where she’d seen them the most, hanging on trees in hunters’ yards. I suspect some children think orange clothes grow on trees also. Can I use this in Earth Legend? What would a child who was born and grew up in a space ship consider normal? Or abnormal? Would they think sunshine is abnormal? Moonlight? Night? The sound of insects? Would they think the slight tremble of any moving object is normal?
