Me: Hey, Ducky! Come here.
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.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Me: Ducky…
Ducky: Hi, Daddy!
Me: Ducky…
Ducky: I’m helping!
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Daddy?
Me: Yes, Ducky?
Ducky: What exactly am I helping you do?
Me: Well, I’m trying to do yoga.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, Daddy, what exactly am I helping you do?
Me: Yoga is a kind of exercise. Basically stretching.
Ducky: Ah!
Me: But as it relates to your question, at the moment you aren’t exactly helping me do it at all.
Ducky: …
Me: You kind of keep getting in the way.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: In my defense I’ve had limited training.
Me: None.
Ducky: No training. That’s right.
Me: I appreciate the thought, but…
Ducky: You got down of the floor. And started rolling around.
Me: Yes I did.
Ducky: Looked like it was in my wheelhouse. Thought I could bluff my way through.
Me: Understandable.
Ducky: And I heard talk of doggies.
Me: “Downward Dog” is a position, but …
Ducky: This mat is nice.
Me: …
Ducky: Squooshy.
Me: Ducky…
Ducky: If this is exercise, shouldn’t you be moving more?
Me: Yes. Which is hard to do with you there.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It really is a nice and squooshy mat.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Yesterday's new Ducky post!

Ducky “helps” with my yoga stretches.

wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: Don’t talk to me.
Me: You’re going to feel so much better!
Ducky: You always say that.
Me: You seem to always need the reminder.
Ducky: I wouldn’t say I need a reminder. You seem to need a rationalization for regularly water boarding me.
Me: I am not water boarding you.
Ducky: That’s for the courts to decide.
Me: Do you even know what water boarding is?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I believe water is involved…
Me: …
Ducky: …and it is unpleasant…
Me: …
Ducky: and it involves unwilling participation. So…
Me: There’s more to it than that.
Ducky: I know. You also use soap.
Me: No. I mean…
Ducky: Doggie torture!
Me: Stop. It’s just a bath. And you’ve been itchy.
Ducky: I don’t recall telling you that I’ve been itchy.
Me: You’ve given subtle visual cues.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: The constant scratching?
Me: The constant scratching.
Ducky: I’d hoped you hadn’t noticed.
Me: Almost done, Duck. Just need to let the soap soak in a little. Hey you know what could help pass the time?
Ducky: Filing affidavits?
Me: There’s a Ducky song about baths!
Ducky: …
Me: My parents used to sing it to me!
Ducky: …
Me: I could sing it to you. Carry on the tradition for another generation!
Ducky: Don’t…
Me: Rubber Ducky, you’re the one! You make bath time lots of fun!
Ducky: Is singing the thing that makes it water boarding?
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Ducky has a guest!

This week’s new Ducky post!

Me: She’s not going to give you any.
Ducky: Shush.
Me: You can’t have ice cream.
Ducky: This doesn’t concern you. 
Me: Stare at her all you want. You’re not getting ice cream.
Ducky: I’m not staring. We’re communicating. I’m conveying my desire for ice cream and she is considering how much to give me.
Me: Looks a lot like staring.
Ducky: To the layman.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: She doesn’t seem to be giving you ice cream.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: She might be stupid.
Me: Hey!
Ducky: Am I not making it clear that I would like ice cream?
Me: I could tell. She probably can too. She is just choosing to not give you any.
Ducky: If that was true it would mean she was a very cruel lady. You may want to think such horrible things about The Lady. I do not.
Me: …
Ducky: I choose to think she is stupid.
Me: How nice of you.
Ducky: Thank you.
Me: That was sarcasm.
Ducky: So was my “thank you.”
Me: …
Ducky: The stupid seems to be spreading in this house.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Hungry grumpies, Ducky?
Ducky: Maybe a bit. She’s almost done with the ice cream.
Me: Yeah. Would you like one of your treats?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s a stupid question.
Me: …
Ducky: See? That was a call back. Three is f…
Me: Yes. Very clever. I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Me: Wanna’ play tugger, Ducky?
Ducky: No thank you.
Me: What’s wrong?
Ducky: You’re packing.
Me: Oh. Don’t worry. We’re not moving again.
Ducky: Promise?
Me: Yeah. I’m just going on a short trip for my job.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I don’t think I like that either.
Me: Sorry, Duck. But it’s only for a few days.
Ducky: Where are you going?
Me: Houston.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m not sure what kind of answer you could have given that I would have considered helpful. But that wasn’t one of them.
Me: Sorry. It’s just the name of another city. 
Ducky: Well then leave the food out for me? Prop the door so I can go potty? Leave the television on so I don’t get lonely?
Me: Oh stop. The Lady is staying with you.
Ducky: Oh good!
Me: Scooter too.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Oh good.
Me: I’m gonna’ miss you, Ducky. Be good and stay safe while I’m gone.
Ducky: You too. Hey! I have an idea! Why don’t we play tugger before you go?
Me: Sounds like a plan. I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
