And The Geese Came Back....

You may have heard that NY City has been culling Canada geese. Gassing them, actually, which just sounds....mean. I hate stepping in goose poop as much as anyone, and I am aware geese don't file flight plans with local airports, but it seems the geese may end up having the last laugh. Read here.

But the best part of the article? This comment:

"Earlier today I took a walk over to Prospect Park and had a long talk with the geese. It turns out that most of them had no idea that they were bothering people because nobody had told them. Some of them had realized it, but were lost and didn’t know where else to go, so I gave them directions. Many of the ducks and squirrels also didn’t realize that they had become annoying. The insects did but, didn’t care, so they’re a lost cause.

Anyway, the goose problem is over."

"So I was on the subway the other day and this goose comes up and asks me which is the closest stop to Prospect Park" was pretty good too.

I vote we unilaterally change the name to "Osama bin goosed" and sick Dubyah on them.

A Canada goose stole my lunch and pecked at my kneecaps one day during a grade school outing. I ran towards the teacher in fear only to come across a very angry Swan. Got me in the belly. I still HATE Swans.

Just read this weeks Motherlode. The last sentence rings such a chord I had to comment on it.

"True beauty is in the weathered. Sometimes, loving something means letting it be." You could have been speaking of me. I am weathered, and sometimes I just need to be left alone.

So the birds can poop on me.
