Goose Advice For Honda

goose honda love story,

The biggest Honda fan ever is Louise the goose.

Her steadfast devotion to my 2004 Honda Accord is a tale so oddly endearing that Neatorama and Huff Po wrote about her too. Louise is clearly breaking new barriers in fowl vehicle relations.

But she doesn’t care about notoriety. She spends all day looking at her large silver soul mate as if expecting it to murmur Hey Boo what’s up? in her direction. Although we’ve assumed this love as unrequited, my friend Margaret has a point. She asked, “How do you know the Honda isn’t giving off a vibe that only a goose in love can pick up?” Good point.

After watching Louise with her beloved day after day, we’re picking up some suggestions for the designers at Honda via goose telepathy.

1. Make your honk more compellingly goose-like. Notice that the standard Honda honk is boring, even to a creature fluent in honk-ese.

Want to hear a real honk Honda? Here’s Louise to demonstrate.

2. Strive for goose quality security systems, with enhanced vigilance featuring interactions with the surroundings.

3. Consider designing a new model, more advanced and (I say with considerable bias) more extraordinary than any car ever. It would be a soft gray, accented by orange rims and an orange front bumper. It would be able to fly short distances when necessary.

The name? Honda Toulouse, of course.

About Laura Grace Weldon

Laura Grace Weldon is a writer and editor, perhaps due to an English professor's scathing denunciation of her writing as "curious verbiage." She's the author of "Free Range Learning," a handbook of natural learning and "Tending," a poetry collection. (lauragraceweldon.com) She's working on her next book, "Subversive Cooking" (subversivecooking.com). She lives on Bit of Earth Farm where she is a barely useful farm wench. Although she has deadlines to meet she often wanders from the computer to preach hope, snort with laughter, cook subversively, talk to chickens and cows, discuss life’s deeper meaning with her surprisingly tolerant offspring, sing to bees, hide in books, walk dogs, concoct tinctures, watch foreign films, and make messy art.

    Wonderful post! I love the ideas and the videos demonstrating them! I think that Louise would make a wonderful technical adviser for Honda, the company, not the soul mate.

    Yahoo to the above comment! Anyone at Honda (the company, not the soul mate) listening?
    Laura, as always, you have expanded our horizons with your writings. And bless dear Louise for starting this saga – so glad we have been able, even briefly, to make her acquaintance. May she continue to thrive and love steadfastly.
