The Goose is cooked

Before I start rambling about geese, thanks all for the sympathy in having a lousy Valentine's day. It was what it was but today is a new day and I'm hoping for a better understanding of what it is that I need and want.

I would recommend watching the movie, Fireproof if you're feeling like your relationship needs rekindling or maybe more of a oneness. It's not the greatest movie but the concept is good. I purchased the Love Dare journal for myself, mainly, to take the Love Dare for 40 days straight...working on a new assignment each day. Boo saw it while we were talking yesterday and asked if he could take the Love Dare challenge for 40 days instead. I'm all for him learning a few things about romancing, empathizing and working towards a closer relationship.I am a bit skeptical that he can stick with it for the 40 days but we'll see.

Now, on to the goose...

I work at a very lavish hospital that is known for celebrity and governmental officals being admitted. There's lots of frills just for them. There are 7 lakes on the campus. Somehow, maybe years ago, someone had this brilliant idea to bring in ducks and geese. Since then, they have multiplied. Instead of leaving for the winter, (there's no winter here, only nice warm sunshine) they have told two friends and they've told friends and so on and so on and so on.

Walking becomes a chore because of the green landmines left on the sidewalk. Heaven forbid you smile at one of those squawkers because they'll chase you until you run for cover. Speaking of cover...have you ever seen a billion geese fly? Why do they have to poop while flying. I personally think they do it for sport...like goose NFL or something. They must gain points on dropping poop on moving objects.

They women geese are ho's and the men are playas. I literally watched one geese ho stand in the middle of about 12 guy geese and while she patted her feathers and preened. The guy geese started fighting over her. She just stood there with a look of pleasure on her face.

I've also seen a Come to Jesus revival going on with the geese. For that, they invited even geese from other countries. Those foreign geese decided that they wanted citizenship here and guess what? They never left!!

I have decided to do my part in ending world hunger by cooking a goose each day and sticking him in my freezer until I have enough to ship to food banks...not unless any of you want one. I'll give you a deal if you pluck the feathers yourself.

You are very noble, but I don't think I want to eat goose. Thanks for the offer though!

LOL!!! That is the funniest thing! I could never work there with my bird fear and all. I would be Elmer Fudd and shoot them.

OMG- Please tell me you aren't serious. If you can catch one, I want one. I love Geese. They are a lot like my children. They poop everywhere, they don't shut-up, their brains are tiny, and they seem to multiply. Send a few over. I love em.

I don't eat anything 2-legged, remember?

I just read your Valentine's yuckiness too... I'm sorry... even if a man doesnt like it, he should want to make you happy - even in small ways... I'm sorry.... I'm praying that hearts are open & he is everything you want to be married to...

But they do look amazing when flying. We sometimes have geese and swans flying over, the noise and gracefulness is nature at it's best.
My two dogs stand there for ages looking up at the sky as if to say WTH?
