R2D2: Beep Boop.
Johnson: That’s not racist it’s just a fact. R2 astro-mech droids kind of all sound…
R2D2: Beep Boop.
Johnson: Go ahead. Go to HR. And then we can have a nice open conversation about the lack of diversity in some of our hiring decisions over the last few years.
R2D9: Beep Boop Boop.
Johnson: I know it’s your department and I also know that IG-88 didn’t even get an interview…
R2D9: Beep Boop.
Johnson: I’m not implying anything. I just think HR might be interested in digging…
R2D2: Beep Beep Boop Boop.
Johnson: And they will certainly be interested in the use of that sort of non inclusive language in the workplace.
R2D2: Beep Boop.
Johnson: *sigh* Look’s like we need to go over our office communication agreements again. Everyone pull out your pocket guides.
R2D2: Beep Boop

Ducky: …
Me: Come here, Ducky.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Why?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Because I love you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: You can love me from over there.
Me: Saw me pick up the nail clippers, huh?
Ducky: I have keen senses. I noticed the slight change in posture, the variation in tone of voice, your furtive glances, and the slight increase in perspiration.
Me: …
Ducky: And I saw you pick up the nail clippers, yes.
Me: You need a nail clipping.
Ducky: So says you.
Me: And other people.
Ducky: Who? The Lady?
Me: She’s noticed, yes, but there have been others.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The cat just wants me to suffer.
Me: Scooter has yet to express her opinion on the subject. But we did get a message too.
Ducky: What kind of message? From who?
Me: Someone who reads our conversations on-line. She sent us a note letting us know that she noticed that you needed a nail clipping.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Who does that?!
Me: Someone who cares.
Ducky: The pictures you use aren’t even always current! Whatever picture she saw may have been from months ago.
Me: Quite possibly. But it reminded me to take a look at your nails and you’re definitely due.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s how Hitler got started.
Me: That is in no way how Hitler got started.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I might be having a bit of an anxiety attack.
Me: I’m sorry.
Ducky: See, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but…
Me: You don’t like getting your nails clipped.
Ducky: I do not like getting my nails clipped. Not at all.
Me: I’m sorry, Ducky. But how about you get a treat after we’re done?
Ducky: How about we get me a treat instead?
Me: ‘Fraid not. I’m sorry. But a treat afterwards I can do.
Ducky: …
Me: Or two.
Ducky: Okay.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

I’m afraid there’s no new Ducky post this week. There have been some home owner near disasters at “Well That’s Just A House” that have been a bit all consuming. We promise to be up and running again next week. Thanks for understanding!
Me: Okay, Ducky. I explained to the internet people. Now give me that adjustable wrench.
Ducky: It’s a bad solenoid.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I know it’s probably a bad solenoid, but right now we need to stop the water from flooding the neighborhood.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: So sandbags. Sandbags would be better than a wrench.
Me: Ducky…
Ducky: Right tool for the right job, that’s what I always say.
Me: You’ve never said that.

Last Sunday’s new Ducky Post from wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: You look tired.
Me: I am.
Ducky: Ran again today?
Me: Yup. A half marathon. And we saw a doggie run the whole thing with his daddy!
Ducky: …
Me: Over 13 miles.
Ducky: …
Me: Maybe we could start training you for that.
Ducky: …
Me: ..
Ducky: No need. I am already tired fairly regularly. 
Me: That’s not why you run.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How long was that doggie running?
Me: About two and a half hours.
Ducky: Uh huh. And while that doggie was doing that, what was I doing?
Me: I’m guessing sleeping.
Ducky: Since I was asleep from the time you left until now, good guess.
Me: Not interested in running?
Ducky: I’m not saying that. But I’m working on soaring with my strengths first.
Me: You are good at sleeping.
Ducky: Yup. Slept all morning. You know what I have planned for the afternoon?
Me: Sleeping?
Ducky: Bingo. I’m pulling a double. I bet that dog isn’t doing another half marathon.
Me: No, I would bet not.
Ducky: What do you think he is doing this afternoon?
Me: Probably sleeping.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Jack of all trades, master of none.
Me: That’s one way of looking at it.
Ducky: Thanks for wanting to run with me.
Me: Always want to be with you, Duck. But I think you’re right. Focus on the sleeping. It’s your special gift.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
