Every new discovery calls for a committee meeting, where the goslings huddle up and discuss the nature of say, a dandelion, before attempting to eat it. So far in the tested-but-inedible category are my muck boots, buttons on my pants, the siding on the house, a clay pot, my orange IPhone case. Alfalfa and clover are deemed most excellent. After fifteen or so minutes, they tucker out and collapse like puppies in a pile.

The geese are just about ready to do their part. I hear them now scheduling a meeting so they can confer for a while about the meaning of water.
