Where in the World is Mother Goose?

Mother Goose apologizes here and now for the lapse in my stories. I hope that you will bear with me as I push through this transitional time in the life of a goose. The reason for my absence as of late? Employment. Yes, it is true — Mother Goose has been hired by a national retail giant as a “mystery shopper” and now my life is not my own…

This change in employment has caused a name change as well. You may now call me Dark Goose.

Living incognito as Dark Goose…

Being undercover in this new stage in my life has both benefits and drawbacks as you may well imagine. Consider the benefits: a regular paycheck even during this intense time of training. Consider the drawbacks: I must always be on the alert, always watching my back. If my identity is compromised, I’m immediately “not necessary” and WHO KNOWS what that might mean…

Hence, I must ask you, dear and gentle reader, for a very large favor, and I hope that you will comply with much grace.

Please do not share this information with anyone.

Watching you as discreetly as possible, I remain forever, your Dark Goose.

    What IS a ‘mystery shopper’ Mother Goose? or is that something that we must not speak about…

      We may only whisper about being a mystery shopper. I shop undercover to discern if the store employees are following the guidelines they’ve been trained to follow. It’s all about customer service, cloak and dagger style. And thanks for asking!

    I signed up to be a mystery shopper years ago, but I’m afraid there wasn’t much call for those – out here in the boonies. Good luck!

      I would imagine that in your neck of the woods, everybody knows everybody. If you put on your mystery shopper disguise, your friends would all see behind your sunglassy eyes. Thanks Dianna for stopping over to my place!
