Duck duck goose

8 Jan

I was intrigued (the mild kind of intrigue spawned in some people by words and their meaning) to find out yesterday that the ‘duck’, the animal, was named after ‘duck’ the action you take when something is about to hit you on the head, and not the other way around.

I’m off for a few days to build sand castles and fly kites. See you when I return.
