Join Two Writing Teachers and other teacher-writers as we share a slice of life every single day in the month of March.
I sit in the drive-through at CVS waiting to pick up a prescription when I notice two Canadian geese waddling down the street. Yes, down the street. We have a small lake in this area where the geese are abundant, and sometimes they extend their boundaries just a bit.
As I watch the pair, I wonder, "I know geese mate for life, but how do you tell which one is female and which one is male?"
As I ponder this deep question, one of them walks straight down the middle of the street looking back every once in a while to see if the partner is still there. The other one walks along and makes a point to waddle through every puddle along the way.
I think I just found my answer.
