The Peculiar Goat Sound

“I think someone around us got a goat as well.”

“Why do you say that?” Doug asked.

“I keep hearing a goat’s cry.  I thought yesterday that maybe there was one in the fairgrounds, but I heard it again this morning.”

“It’s a rooster,” he matter-of-factly said.

“What do you think I am stupid?  I don’t know the difference between a goat and a rooster?  (eye roll)  A neighbor definitely got a goat.”

“It’s a rooster.  I’m looking at him right now.”

Yesterday, I thought I heard a goat cry again so I ran outside to rescue the baby goats.  Twas Henry.

Then I thought a girl was screaming next door.  Henry again.

It really is embarrassing.  Henry looks so regal and fine as he herds his little ladies around (not the older girls; they will let him have it!) and tries to crow.  I imagine he is just a teenaged boy trying to find that manly voice within.  Remember when we couldn’t decide if Henry was Henry or Louisa?  I guess that answers our question.  He’s Henry.  Henry Higgins.  The screaming girl goat….er..rooster.
