You have to give it to the duck. They are versatile little creatures. They can swim, they can fly and if they have to, they can waddle. And now I finding out, they can also dance.
I actually have one of these dancing ducks. She perches right outside my front door doing what she does best – – dancing. And she does this from dusk ‘til dawn. She rests at night. But before you know it, she’ll be back at it again, shimmying at first light.
A duck shouldn’t be allowed to have that much fun. Let’s face it, most ducks don’t have that much fun. This one does, and she only cost a dollar.
I’ve always said, if you get an hour’s worth of enjoyment out of a dollar-store toy, then you got your money’s worth.
I like to think of her as my personal Walmart greeter – just without the greeting. She’s a nonverbal greeter. She simply waves hello and goodbye with her hips.
It’s been a couple of months now since I’ve had this dancing duck and there’s no signs of stopping. In fact, it’s not even mine. But luckily my 3-year-old neighbor hasn’t asked for it back yet.
I’m not worried though. If she does, I’ll just distract her by giving her all the Disney princess stickers she wants…
