Well, the final week of my internship has come and gone.

Weighing a captured bat. Thursday. Hour ‘til midnight. It’s warm. 76. Fahrenheit. Not Celsius. Probably implied though. We Americans are hipsters when it comes to our measurement of temperature. Anyways. 90% humidity.

First and foremost, I hate geese.

They are just terrible, god awful things. Last year they pooped all over my porch and attacked me during my morning jog on the regular.

I’m going to talk about their total opposites, waterfowlnesswise: Ducks. Lovely ducks.
