Sometimes things in life literally just sneak up on you. This seal got a slight surprise that it was not ready for.
A boat sailing between the summer ice floes in Alaska passes by a seal lazily sunning itself.
The seal looks up once and goes back to its nap. It glances up again and sees the boat almost upon his ice floe.
It nearly gives this little guy a heart attack.
Isn’t this video just a metaphor for life?
You see something looming in the distance or in the future and think nothing of it. And then all of a sudden it nearly runs you over.
Just stay on top of your metaphorical ice floe and hopefully the thing will just pass you by.
