The place where I live keeps some ducks as part of the landscape. They're big, fat and white little buggers which must have done good in their past life. All they do all day is frolic in the pond, snooze under the tree and get fed by all the thrilled little kids and guards! My dad counts them every now and then and it's funny how their numbers increase and decrease sporadically. We suspect the guards for fattening them up for a good ducky meal! :p
Anyway, yesterday morning, I left as usual and had to stop my car cos half of these white fat buggers were crowding around on the road! The other half were watching with their beady eyes over the hedge to see how far their relatives would get before they attempted it themselves! Sitting comfortably on the road, they cleaned themselves and pranced around, making no attempt to move even when I hooted softly.
Then suddenly, the idea that they were holding up traffic must have occurred to them 'cos they suddenly decided to take off back to the other side of the hedge where they came from, amidst much quacking and waddling (they're really too fat!)! So, why did those fat ducks cross the road?! Hehe...a question for you on a Wet Wet Wednesday!
