A Duck Tale
by Janice S.
(oh I is sooo funny! heh)
We had an unexpected visitor this evening …
I live in the ‘burbs, so it’s not everyday you see a duck stroll up your front walk.
(not one word about my weedy front walk … shush)
These next few shots have been cracking me up since I opened them …
(blame it on the heat, maybe)
Just out for a stroll. No biggie. Nothing to see here, move along.
hmmmm … looks a little sunnier on that side …
I’ma going over there.
holy CRAP this pavement is hot!
is that a car coming??? aaaahhhhh!
hey, you ever hear that joke about the chicken crossing the road? no?
I’ll tell ya later.
okay, made it
damn these are some high curbs!
ahhh … definitely sunnier over here
now if I could just ditch that crazy lady following me
Back off Lady!!!
ummmm … where am I?
none of this is looking familiar.
oh great, the crazy lady brought her kid
I’m outta here … which way is home?
y’all gotta map?
Daughter and I were actually pretty worried about the little guy. I thought he might’ve been hurt or something because he sure wasn’t making any effort to get the hell out of there.
She went back to the house to get some bread so maybe we could lure him down the street to the pond.
I told her to just pick him up and carry him. Get some oven mitts, I told her. It’s all good.
Oh! and you can bet that I totally walked that duck across the street, arms out to stop traffic and all.
Yep. I did.
And then all of a sudden, after about an hour, he just decided to up and fly away. It looked a little dicey because he skimmed the pavement for a few hundred yards, but off he went, hanging a right at the end of the street and heading towards the pond.
Daughter and I both looked at each other with dropped jaws. Crazy duck.
I figure maybe he banged into something and needed time to sort himself out.
Or maybe he got tired in the heat too.
Maybe he got turned around? Does that stuff happen? heh.
More than likely, he got tired of us stalking his cute duck self.
Or maybe, just maybe, he heard about my mad photo skillz and wanted some shots for the family.
Yeah, that’s it :)
