The first date of the Fuzzy Duck and Rubber Chicken

The Fuzzy Duck had been dreaming of this date for days.

She got her hair brushed, put on her special bronzer and even gave herself a webbed pedicure.

Finally, she was ready to walk to the restaurant from her cozy cottage. As a modern duck, she refused to have the man pick her up on the first date. After all, what if things fizzled? He could pick her up on the second date, she reasoned.

When she got to the hottest vegetarian restaurant in town, Grass, the Rubber Chicken was waiting for her with flowers.

"You look gorgeous," he told her, his yellow feathers turning bright red.

"Thanks!" the Fuzzy Duck beamed.

Ever the gentleman, the Rubber Chicken had picked the best table.

After a couple drinks of wheat grass martinis, they dined on slow roasted corn with a side of curry barley and the house salad.

Once the Rubber Chicken had picked up the tab, the two lovebirds went on a stroll before dessert.

They floated through the tunnel of love in a swan boat at a elementary school carnival.

Next, they stopped by a Christmas tree farm to look at all the gorgeous Christmas trees.

They even stopped to take pictures by the world's biggest poinsettia.

The Rubber Chicken was such a sensitive soul he even volunteered to hold her purse while the Fuzzy Duck frolicked through the trees.

To top off a romantic evening, they shared a peanut butter milk shake at a local sweet shop. You see, it's a big secret chickens and ducks love peanut butter!

Ever the gentleman, the Rubber Chicken walked the Fuzzy Duck home. After a brief kiss, he suggested a second date.

Now the Fuzzy Duck is just waiting for him to call!

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! Tomorrow we have another treasured recipe from Margaret! Then Friday we have a new Twirl and a new Kitchen Magic Saturday. And in the next day or two, my book of Christmas Tales will be available for sale! Stay tuned for more information!



That is priceless!! You are such a great writer :0)

I didn't know that chicken and ducks liked peanut butter. I'm always learning something new when I read your wonderful stories.

Megan said...

Dont sit by the phone fuzzy duck. Rubber chicken will never call if your waiting by the phone. Go hang with the cookie stealing bunny till the phone rings! :)

Reeni said...

Ring Ring Ring May I please speak with Blonde Duck? I just wanted to call and say Thank you for a wonderful night. I felt like I floated on air on the flight home from your house. I can't wait to see you again but don't want to be too pushy. Are you available Friday night?

Cathy said...

Nothing compares to the magic of new love. Fuzzy Duck looked beautiful for her big date! And Rubber Chicken . . . looks like he has a great personality.

Pam said...

Fuzzy duck's first cute. I am glad she acted like a lady.

Rhea said...

I think Fuzzy Duck and Rubber Chicken have some hope for romance! Woohoo!

Ingrid said...

Duckie you are a nut!

I agree with the others, Fuzzy shouldn't wait by the phone. Perhaps we should get her a copy of the book, Rules; think it will work for ducks?

Bunny said...

He held her purse, my hubby doesn't do that...he's such a gentleman! Love the story Duckie, very cute!

Spring Fricks said...

wow, the rubber chicken held her purse. He is a keeper! This was great. I can't wait for more.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

you are too cute!

sassy stephanie said...

Not much more than that rubber chicken can make me laugh. Except of course for rubber chicken holding a purse!

Lorraine E said...

Haha how did you manage to get a cute ribber chicken?

Paula said...

I love that Fuzzy Duck wore her special bronzer. Gotta love a gal that knows how to use makeup to bring out her best look. I used to make peanut butter milkshakes all the time when I worked at a cafeteria many moons ago. I'd not heard of bronzer back then ... just plenty of Merle Norman blush and Bonne Bell watermelon flavored lip gloss. It was the 70's afterall. :-)

Heather said...

so happy that the date went well! fuzzy duck is just so adorable!!

Juliet said...

She got a webbed pedicure???? :) hahahha, I feel out of my seat laughing when I read that.. my husband thought something was wrong with me!! :)

noble pig said...

I think he'll call cause he's a rubber and chicken and all.

jenjen said...

I don't know Duckie. She went in the Tunnel of Love with him on the first date? Maybe she needs to play harder to get... Funny!

Marie said...

I think he's smitten. He'll call or I'll eat my hat!! This was brilliant as usual!

Michelle said...

Haha! I LOVED IT! You are so creative. I think if I put anything in front of you, you would write a wonderful story about it.
