Last Sunday’s new Ducky post. This week’s new post goes up at 7:00 ET tonight at wellthatsjustducky:
Ducky: You’re not happy with me.
Me: I’m not happy with you.
Ducky: I could tell.
Ducky: You left the doors open.
Me: So it’s my fault?
Me: You’d be in a better position to argue if you hadn’t refused to turn around and come back when I called you.
Ducky: I never heard you call me.
Me: I called you, you stopped, turned around, looked at me, and then turned back around and started running again.
Ducky: That was you?
Ducky: I thought that was a squirrel.
Me: You thought a squirrel called your name?
Ducky: A tall squirrel.
Ducky: A tall, handsome, forgiving squirrel.
Ducky: Okay. Maybe I knew it was you. But I also know my opportunities for freedom are limited! And I came back!
Me: You could have gotten hurt.
Ducky: I’m sorry, Daddy.
Me: Please don’t do that anymore.
Ducky: I don’t do it to upset you.
Me: I know. I love you , Ducky. I just need you to be safe.
Ducky: I’ll try.
Me: And I’ll try to be more careful about the doors.
Ducky: Probably smart. I mean well but my impulse control is less than reliable.
Me: I know. I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
