Grace for Geese: Saved by Witnesses

The only reason these geese are still alive is because of the long line of cars in the opposite lane, full of witnesses.  There were too many witnesses to make me comfortable enough to follow through with the overwhelming urge to plow right through this gaggle.

Think what you want about me, but I despise geese for numerous and very legitimate reasons.  In this particular moment, as I inched toward them trying to pressure them to move faster, I was also yelling, "For real?  You have WINGS!  FLY over the road!"  Alas, they chose, as they always do to waddle at the slowest possible pace, across the road.

Next time, geese, you won't be so lucky!

  1. It's like they are stalking you waiting for the perfect moment to be an infernal irritation without allowing you the opportunity to avenge yourself! Oh, they are brilliant mental terrorists those plumed beasts.
