Speaking of mean geese when I was about seven my cousin was over for the day. She's only about six months older than I am so when were were kids we were great friends. My Mom took us to a park a few blocks away from our house. I don't recall how we got in to the situation but my cousin and I wound up being chased by a flock of geese (the white kind who are really really mean). I got away but my poor cousin tripped and fell. Do you know what the geese did to her? They stole one of her shoes and swam off with it in the pond. My Mom knowing her sister would kill her if she sent my cousin home with only one shoe bravely went after the goose mugger and retrieved the shoe. At the time it was absolutely terrifying and I'm sure my cousin still doesn't think it was funny but these days I can not tell this story without cracking up. A freaking goose stole her shoe. Lol good times.
