Some People Juggle Geese

In my wanderings I happened across a Beanie Baby goose at the thrift store, and happened to pick it up thinking that it might make a fun small prize at the Browncoat Ball. But now I'm having to wrestle with that idea.

Pixel thinks this goose is the best toy ever. Rick caught him playing with it a month ago, and put it on top of the shelf in the bathroom where Pixel couldn't get it. So I was cleaning last night (day 4 - still cleaning. Tonight's task - clean the dirty hand prints off the walls and ceilings) and I pulled down the goose. I put it down, not really thinking this was some sort of magic kitty summoning tool. But before I know it, there's Pixel throwing it into the air and catching it and tossing it and swatting it, over and over again. I yell, "Hey!" and take it away from him. I put it in the center of the table, and I didn't think he saw me do it. He's not allowed on the table. But a few minutes later I walk in and he's just fished it off the table, and again with the fling-catch-fling-swat.

So, I took it away again, this time locking it up in the wardrobe. But now I'm feeling bad about that. Maybe Pixel just really wants to juggle geese. It seems wrong not to let him have his fun. Maybe I can order some other Beanie Baby geese for the ball.


  • They seem cheap enough on Amazon. You just need three to juggle. If you found goslings that would be even better.
