The duck and I
The top photo is the view from my front door. The townhouse association's swimming pool is framed by gorgeous crab apple blossoms. A small speck on the opposite side of the pool has been magnified in the second photo to reveal a vacationing bachelor duck.
When I came out on the landing to snap some lint off a throw rug, the duck jerked his bill with each snap of the rug. I cut short my snapping to avoid having a stressed out duck on my hands.
When addressing a duck, be clear on your facts.
If the nearer end tickles, the farther end quacks.
