The Boys are Back in Town

And by the Boys, I mean......

The Geese. 

But there's no cool song that talks about Geese.  Except maybe Geese Lightening (insert collective inward groan here).

So anyway, a few weeks ago I was having a really bad day.  The kind that only mint chocolate cake from Harmon's can fix.  As I drove in to the parking lot I had to stop to let 3 geese cross my path.  That should have been my first clue.  I walked in to Harmon's and guess what.....No Mint Cake!  Agh!  Curses!

I walked around the store in a funk, not sure what to do.  Because honestly, I really wanted that Mint Cake. And once I get a craving in my head, no amount of other food is going to cut it.  I can't remember what I ended up with.  Something gross I'm sure.

As I drove back to work, I remembered that the geese had also been the parking lot that morning as I got out of my car.  So I hate to say it, but really, those geese caused my terrible horrible no good very bad day.

Today as I was walking in to work I heard a crazy amount of honking.  I looked up, expecting to see them flying over head.  But instead they were sitting along the roof of my building!  Like Gargoyles, guarding the building.  It was seriously creepy!  Even the dude walking in with me said he had never seen that before.

Fortunately I kept the following thought to myself :"Holy crap!  How on earth did they get up there?". 

Duh.  Geese fly.  I mean, really, I was seconds away from saying this out loud and looking like a complete ignoramus!

And of course I walked in to work and was immediately met with bad news.

Why do they hate me?

And now I want mint cake.  Damn Geese.


  1. I have some cupcakes??!? Probably wouldn't cure the craving though...

  2. You are due for a VERY GOOD day real soon, I'd say. Hope you get your cake this time ;)

  3. Dude, those geese need to BACK OFF. What the heck?? I think you need to go find some mint cake and make everything better.

  4. oh no! Geese are super creepy - you need geese repellant! Have a great weekend and good luck with the mint cake!

  5. Ooh! Geese repellent! I wonder if there really is such a thing! :)

    No mint cake, dang it. Stupid Harmon's.

  6. You and those dang geese! I hope a mint cake comes your way SOON!

  7. So, what was the bad news when you got back to work?

    Geese! Can't live with 'em, can't keep 'em from migrating back. :)


What's up little pup?
