28 Days of Writing - And then she said

And then she said "Go swim in your own pond!" and threw me and my fishing pole out.

What did you do?

I forgot Valentine's Day.

Ugh.  That's bad.

No.  I have an excuse.  Last year I brought her a huge mahi-mahi to make for our dinner and she spouted sewage at me for a month.

Um....most women don't like to cook on Valentine's Day.  They want to be wined and dined.

In our pond, it's too much whining and not enough dining.  Last year,  I drank all of the wine waiting on dinner.  I finally cooked the fish myself while she went to soak in the hot lake with her girlfriends.

Dude, you are still not getting it.  You need to show her you love and care for her.   Actually, you need to do that every day, not just on Valentine's Day.

Well, um.....Oh, I see.  Sigh.  I guess I could gut those fish I caught and clean up my messes in a more timely manner.

Now you're catching on a bit.

Ok.  Ok.  I'll make those repairs to our nest and replace all the wine I drank.

Good job.  I gotta go.  Waddle back to your little stream and give her a big feathery hug.

Quack.  Quack.

Spend some time with some of the other animals today.  It's survival of the fittest with this darn writing challenge.

Ah, a little comedy is just the perfect medicine for most mallard-ies.

Valentine's Day? What's that? And who knew that ducks drink wine?
