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!
