It’s a crazy world and the geese and I are both confused by it. Not surprisingly, that’s more unusual for the geese.
The fall photo above I get but then there’s now.
The calendar says spring, the geese are coming back in droves and I’m refusing to shovel new snow thinking it has to melt. It’s spring but I digress.
So I do the logical thing and put goose in a bunch of animal expressions just because … well I have no idea. Ya it’s that kind of day.
I might have cooked my own goose with all this but I’ll let you decide if I have any goose sense!
“OK I’m confused. I’m sure it’s somehow the fault of the geese – they must navigate like I do.”
Here we go … 20 expressions that will never, ever find their way into the English language:
Crooked as a goose’s long neck
Why did the goose cross the river or had the goose jumped over the moon?
Busy as a goose or was that quiet as a goose?
Goose in a China shop
A goose life
A cash goose
A goose nap
A goose and bull story
“So what was the real animal – I’m getting confused!”
Every goose has her gander
A goosey cat
Go goose (over something)
Have a goose by the tail
In the goose house
A goose can’t change its honk
Loaded for goose
Look a gift goose in the bill
Put the goose before the goo
You can lead a goose to water but can you teach an old goose new steps?
