Most people know the children’s game, Duck, Duck, Goose. 98% of the country calls it that. I’m grew up in the 2% of the country that called it Duck, Duck, Gray Duck. I’d never heard of Duck, Duck, Goose until I moved from Minnesota and couldn’t figure out what it was. It was a question on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire once and I was sure the person was wrong when they called it Duck, Duck, Goose.
But this isn’t about that children’s game. I thought about it while I was down at the pond today and saw all of the ducks playing in the water. Then a bunch of geese flew over head and the game popped into my mind.
I don’t know how the ducks could stand sitting in the water. It was freezing out there today.
