On fatherly pride

On fatherly pride

The phone rings.

"Mr Duck?" It's your son's school."

Oh Lordy - who's he kicked in the fork in self-defence this time?

"Could you pick him up, please? He's not well."

I arrive at the school gate just in time to see the boy emerging from the undergrowth, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand.

"You all right?" I ask.

"Just been sick," he says at length (Juuuuuusssst beeeen siiiick).

And there is more: "Inna hedge."

That's me boy!

On fatherly pride, Part II

It is Scaryduckling's 16th birthday.

Happy birthday, Scaryduckling.
