A Day Out
Strong Irish coffee
Jamie slammed the front door. He must feed the Resington giant ducks. It was like jury duty – everyone had a go. Finally it was his turn. Still nobody said he had to rush to the lakes. So he wasn’t going to do so.
Jamie felt the giant ducks on Earth Mark 2 sought revenge for all the duck a la orange consumed on Earth Mark 1. Last week the news revealed the ducks raided a now deceased shopper and did terrible things with her Paxo.
At the oval-shaped lake, Jamie hoped the ducks would look friendlier after eating their meat.
