I swear I think I need a button and a Mr Linky for posting about hatred for birds. I believe there is a reason they are called "fowl"
Anyways.....this weeks episode of I Hate Geese comes with yet another visual aid. Please see below. You will note that there are TWO geese in this picture. The one I have had my eye on is indicated in red. She is sitting on the nest. Her baby daddy has been missing in action up until about this week which leads me to believe that the little spawn should be hatching soon.
Late last week my boss was attacked by daddy goose. He and mama goose were off in the field towards the back of the above photo. My boss was walking out to her car and noted that the 2 were flying rather quickly towards her face. Mama goose swooped over her and landed on the nest but big bad papa goose continued to his destination which apparently was my boss's face. Now she was not armed with a mighty Kate Spade bag like I was HERE but she did however have a laptop case to protect her. She lifted it to her face just in time and sent papa goose hissing away after he smacked right into it.
Fast Forward to today. Papa Goose is sitting as indicated above right in the middle of a parking spot. Not to be victimized I parked
right next to him a few spots away and slowly crept out of my car. He stared at me, I stared at him. I swear I heard the sound of western music playing as if there was to be a showdown. My hand twitched towards my gun purse.
A friend of mine pulls up next to me (after pretending to run me over like we are in high school) and he pulls his window down. I dare him (like we are in high school) to park right next to him. Said friend is not one to turn down a dare so he pulls as close as possible next to daddy goose who is already bobbing his stupid head and hissing at him.
Friend gets out.....hisses back and charges at the goose. goose opens wings like a bad ass, thinks twice and turns and runs......My hero.
