walking the goose

Best definition
walking the goose
First, you and three of your friends stop at a garage sale to avoid having to work out at track practice. Next, you find a broken cement goose sculpture being given away for free at that garage sale. Then, you and your friends carry the heavy goose sculpture over a full mile of hills back to your school track/football field, even though it would have been much easier to drive the sculpture back in your car.
Coach: What is that?

You: It’s a cement goose. Instead of running, we were walking the goose.
