Even when there isn’t a goose in sight, we all know they are there.
Some people on campus think they are a nuisance.
They think the geese are rude.
Or they imagine one giving them the stink eye and fear an attack.
Others just ignore them.
I don’t really share these opinions. I think they’re kind of silly creatures, and I like having them around.
I’ve always felt they have a sort of “live and let live” attitude, which is quite generous of them considering they were on this land first, before the human interlopers came and built a college in the middle of their living room.
I can appreciate that.
