Mother Goose

Today I have strained my pectoral muscles punching holes and making innumerable binders. I was also attacked and bitten by a goose that has taken up residence outside our building. I was walking the mail to the mailbox when to my chagrin I found my feathered foe nestled in the middle of the sidewalk. As I approached I was met with an evil hiss. I tried to kindly shoo her away into the pine needles. Just as I felt I was making progress, she attacked. She contorted and stretched her neck and latched her beak firmly on to my top. One hefty tap to her gut by my pointy toed stiletto later I was free. The hem of my shirt is frayed, and while I am quite shaken up the whole ordeal I am mostly unscathed. Unfortunately this display of nature's deadly dance happened just outside the floor-to-ceiling windows of Madame P and Mister VP. As my luck would have it, both were perched at their desks watching my real-life When Good Animals Go Bad. I am once again reminded that you cannot trust creatures that don't blink.

well. I'm am truly sorry that I missed this encounter. I would have 1) laughed 2) cried with tears streaming down my face.

Ha ha, thank you for making me smile...but I am sorry about the goose. Only you...cBr...only you.

and thank you for the comment about Scout. I am ready for the weekend! To Williamsburg we go!

okay- water fowl are just plain scary- one almost bit my sis' eye when she was really little and looking at one of their nests (bad her, yes, but even worse duck) :( so sorry that you got bit and that it was a Dunder Mifflin-esque observation moment for the VP and P

aaggghhh

Ewww, watch out for that goose! And, I would LOVE a date night, but while the QC holds my heart, I rest my head here in La La Land for law school purposes. Trust me ... I will be back home soon and will let you know!!! Xoxo-BLC

I am in stitches. How do you manage all these great things that happen to you? I mean, I guess it was notsogreat, but it was hilarious and you lived to tell about it!
