Yellow rubber duckies always make me smile. They look so darn cheerful. But I always think behind the smile is a hint of sadness. Perhaps they long to be in the wild, in a real lake with their feathered relatives.
Dear Rubber Ducky,
You must have given up a lot to become the quintessential bath toy, but the grass isn’t always greener. With your cheerful yellow color, you would be an easy target for hunters. While toddlers can be terrifying as well, they don’t generally cause permanent damage. Plus, we appreciated and love you.
Thank you for being bright presence in our lives and giving me a reason to smile every night.
