1 Goose, 2 Geese; 1 Moose, 2 Meese

Walks are great. I particularly enjoy the kind of walks that make you want to write about walking. A nice walk in the middle of a hectic work day will do wonders for your productivity! It’s also a good way to stay in shape depending on your pace. My walking pace is sluggish at best, but I don’t do it for personal gain…or weight loss; I do it for the company. Yeah, I’m just that unselfish. Walks can also be dangerous sometimes if you’re focusing more on peering into someone’s home instead of walking.

Now, when I say walk, I don’t mean a walk to any particular destination, such as the nearest McDonalds or Starbucks. I’m talking about those aimless pretty walks. The walks that help you clear your mind and wish there were roses around so that you can stop and partake in that cliche of yesteryear.

So I took a walk this afternoon during my lunch break. It was a beautiful day in May in the GTA, and I want to feel the sun’s ray and maybe spot a blue jay. I’m lucky to have a nice little park near my office, and to my surprise what do I see? A bunch of geese also taking a break from their busy day. I took some pictures of them to capture the moment. It also got me thinking about how confusing English grammar is: the plural of goose is geese, but the plural of moose is NOT meese. I prefer consistency in my life.

And there you go – a short lesson on physical health, grammar, and productivity all rolled up into a nice short blog post.
