I wish I'd said penguin

My wife, bless her cotton support stockings, asked me a week ago what I wanted for Christmas.  We were discussing the food shopping, and she slipped in "What do you want for Christmas?"
I replied, thinking Christmas dinner (boxing day, the day after that and the day after that etc) "I've never had a goose, not realizing it was her subtle way of asking what gift I wanted.
It wasn't until my granddaughter asked, in the not so subtle way that teenagers do.."what the hell are you going to do with a goose, and is the garden big enough?" etc that it all came out.
She, the wife, had been making enquiries about getting me one as a pet.
I wish I'd said penguin!! Cheesy
