A chance encounter


Last Thursday, July 17th, after dropping off my son at day care, I went to Apple Bank to deposit a check.  As I headed for the exit, I heard a bank employee, who was walking in front of me, say that someone's window shopping and she's wondering what he wants.  I assumed she was talking about some hobo. I walked out of the bank and imagine my surprise when I found out that the aforementioned window shopper was, in fact, a goose.

The goose was walking up and down the sidewalk and looking into the stores.  What I wonder is where did he come from.  I've seen birds other than the rat with wings pigeons flying around, but they never landed on the sidewalk and they definitely never went for a stroll.

I didn't have time to hang around to see what happened, so I headed home.  As I was walking away, I heard a woman say that someone should call 911 or something.  How about calling a shochet.

In retrospect, this would be great advertising for a meat store.  "Our meat's so fresh, it'll carry itself" or "Our meat's so fresh, it's still alive".
