Duck, duck . . . Goose, goose . . .
I said "duck." and heard a "quack" in return. Then I got bolder - "DUCK" I yelled as mightily as my pug lungs would let me. A whole row of "ducklings" swam up to me singing "Cheep, cheep, cheep." I got so excited because all of these lil guys wanted to play with me. So I started strutting back and forth yelling "DUCK - DUCK - DUCK!!!!"
All of a sudden I heard this loud "HONK!" and I turned around and there was this massive mommy GOOSE. And she was wildly flapping her wings and running toward me! I mean RIGHT AT ME! She gathered in all the lil'uns, "Honk! Honk! Honk!"
How was I to know my new friends were goslings and not ducklings.
I apologized and left with a quiet "Goose."
From over my shoulder I heard "QUACK!"
It was nonetheless a lovely day at the park and it ended just wonderfully with a trip to the yogurt store.
