Oak Tree and Goose Story

I met up with my friend, Todd, recently, to paint this oak tree. While we were painting, a goose came up from a nearby pond and seemed very friendly. Todd wanted a picture of it, so I picked up some grasses and fed them to the goose, luring him into the sunshine. Unfortunately, the goose decided he liked me, and terrorized me the rest of the time we were there. I stomped, yelled, and hit the ground with a stick, all to no avail; the goose stuck right by me to the end. I was afraid he'd bite me, and I think Todd mainly thought it was funny. He even walked me to my car! The distraction made focusing on painting a bit difficult...
