We drove by a mother duck and five or so ducklings today on our way home from Costco…
M: I’d like to eat them.
J: WHAT!? Why!?
M: No, no. Not the babies, just the mother duck
J: But what about the babies? They would die.
M: I would take them home. They could live in the bathtub.
J: What about the cats?
M: We have a door.
J: Why don’t we get a phantom screen so we can keep the cats out but still see the ducks? Also, what would you feed them?
M: Good idea! You know duck food….
This popped up on my Facebook memories from last year, so I thought I would share it here for your enjoyment.
After having some sort of discussion about rabbits (or this was randomly brought up, I can’t remember – yes, that is a possibility)
M: *sighs* They have hard lives, man
J: Who? Bunnies?
M: Yeah. Wild bunnies have tough lives. Everything is a predator. All they want to do is have a yummy carrot and the farmer is putting up fences and trying to shoot them. All they want is a delicious carrot. 😦
