Talk About Smart!


April 15, 2015

Ummm… Happy Tax Day? Ew. No. Nope. The words “happy” and “tax day” cannot be in the same sentence. Let’s just forget what today is, okay? Okay.

If you read yesterday’s post, you know all about the Wild Goose Chase. Good news!!

They caught him!!! Not animal control, but the guy at the car wash, the guy everyone yesterday called the “Goose Whisperer” because the goose seemed to fancy him (not the man in the picture below. Our man was shy).

This morning, the Goose Whisperer coaxed the goose into the garage with some bread and shut the doors. They called animal control, and voila! Another car wash employee carried him out and handed him over to the people who can hopefully fix him.

The goose is now in surgery.

And now for the Smart Kid!

To continue in the feel-good vein, our next story profiled a high school senior who got acceptance letters from all eight ivy league schools. Dang!! Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Penn, Princeton, Brown, Dartmouth, and Cornell. Oh… the choices!

FRSchoolsHis name is Fernando Rojas, and not only is he incredibly bright (over a 4.8 GPA), he also has the most infectious laugh.

Fernando Rojas Smart KidNeither of his parents finished school, in fact, his mother never even went to high school and often asks Fernando what high school is like. He certainly has made his family and his school, proud.

FRFamCheck out the story. It’s worth watching.

Until tomorrow,

Later gators!

UPDATE TEN PM: Oh man. Pains me to say. The goose died shortly after surgery. 🙁
