FFfAW Week of 05-13-2015 – Being a Duck

wpid-photo-20150508192653404

It sucks being a duck.

The thing about us ducks is we are birds of a feather that flock together. A good flock is what we all desire in life.

I wish I could strut when I walk instead of this tiresome waddle we have been blessed with.

And of course being a flock there is never any privacy. There’s always someone poking their beak into your business if not your food.

Ducks are great gossips you know. We know each other inside and out. There’s a hundred different ways in which we communicate. The humble quack, the demonstrative quack quack and of course the hysterical quack, quack quack.

And if that’s limiting consider our appearance, we all look like the same duck. Though I do have my eye on Mavis, she is such a sassy one, her quack well it really gets me where I like to be get.

Quaaaaaack!!!!!! I’m on fire!!!!!

  1. Hahaha! That Mavis sure is a looker! Better get her attention before the other ducks beat you to it! LOL! I enjoyed your story Michael!

    You got me laughing in the end 😀 😀 I do hope ‘The Ducky on Fire’ gets his Mavis fast 😀

  3. Frederick says:

    This was so fun to read! And educational as well. I never knew ducks gossip! Now I just need to understand them then I can learn all the dirty secrets of everyone I know.

    Cute and funny story. 😊 Like ducks, somewhere along life’s journey, we can find that special someone!

  5. “Ducks are great gossips” –> 😀 So I’m not the only one who thinks this.

    “Though I do have my eye on Mavis, she is such a sassy one, her quack well it really gets me where I like to be get.” –> XD This is so funny!

    Thanks for the laughs and the fun read. Great voice!

    I’m sure if a duck could talk, that would be his voice. ‘There’s always someone poking their beak into your business if not your food.’ – brilliant line! Cute, funny, all round enjoyable story 🙂

    It’s a bad pun about an entertaining story (tho I missed which cutie was Mavis) — you “quack” me up!

    I could hear this “ducky” voice in my head – as I read your piece – chuckling at all the best moments – and I think you’ve personified “quackers” very well indeed. Hilarious! XD

  13. HumaAq says:

    What a really great story! I love the humour all the way through and the last part about the delectably sassy Mavis is superb. 🙂
