A Mysterious Date between the Rubber Chicken and Fuzzy Duck

To see the previous dates and learn about the Fuzzy Duck and Rubber Chicken's story, go here and here.

It was nothing like he had planned.

After their last romantic date, the Rubber Chicken knew what he wanted to ask. The long separation at Christmas had made him even more anxious. The days had felt like weeks and the weeks had felt like years. The phone calls and letters weren't enough. He had to see the Fuzzy Duck, stroke her yellow feathers and kiss that orange beak. And most importantly, he had to ask the question that was burning a hole in his soul.

The duck of his dreams

He had made the reservations at the Nugget, the new hot restaurant, a week in advance. He had called the florist and told her to put together the prettiest bouquet. He'd gotten a feather cut, shined his shoes and ironed his shirt.

For thirty minutes he waited at the restaurant. The Fuzzy Duck never showed.

In his state of devastation, it was as though he could see her fuzzy feathers at the table.

With his head lowered, the Rubber Chicken tipped the waiter and left the restaurant. Something was wrong. He knew it. The Fuzzy Duck would have never stood him up.

He made a beeline for her friend the mermaid, who often hung out at the Fuzzy Duck's cottage.

As soon as she opened the door, he knew it was bad news.

"I thought you might come here," she said. Hiding her face behind her green tail, she handed him a letter. "Read this."

Gulping, the Rubber Chicken took the letter. His eyes skimmed over the hastily written words and he felt his chest tighten.

"Darling," the Fuzzy Duck's desperate hand had scrawled. "Something terrible has happened. My mother has been captured by the dreadful Skull Face of the Halloween decorations. He's threatening to hold her until next October. I tried to call, but I couldn't reach you. I had to go save her. Please understand. I'm yours. Hold my seat for me. Love, the Fuzzy Duck."

Lowering the page, the Rubber Chicken stared at the floor. The Mermaid sniffled and stroked her pet seahorse.

"What are you going to do now?" she asked.

"There's only one thing I can do," the Rubber Chicken said calmly. "I'm going after her."

"What?!?" The mermaid gaped at him. "That's crazy. If she's in the attic, there could be all sorts of spiders and roaches and Easter decorations..."

"I don't care," the Rubber Chicken said, puffing out his chest. "I'd die for the duck I love."

And with that dramatic statement, he ran out into the night. He didn't know where he was going or what he was doing. He was only a simple chicken after all. A simple chicken in love.

But he knew he had to find matter where that might be.

To be continued...

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends! We have a new Gift this weekend and all sorts of whimsical fun to keep you smiling until Monday rolls around! And soon, maybe even as soon as Sunday, the new web design will be revealed!

Will the chicken ever find his duck? Will they be delayed by the evil Halloween decorations? I just don't know, but I'm dying to find out!

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

רציתי לחלוק איתכם במקרה שעברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במשך שנה אחרי המקרה, הרגשתי מדוכאת, חסרת שמחה, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל דרך רפואית רגילה לא יכולתי לשקם את עצמי וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר מכיל מסאג איורוודה מצויין אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. אני לא יכלה להמחיש את השינוי שעברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול מסאג שוודי ראשון, הרגשתי נפלא, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם הרבה כוח, מחויכת ומוכנה להמשך.

[b][url=]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי אשר כולל מוזיקה נעימה, מוזיקה נעימה וריח של קטורת. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע עדין מעל המגבת אחרי שחשפנו את הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. נמרח שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה מלטפת ועדינה מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. אחרי מספר תנועות מפנקות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, לאחר אותם תנועות על הצד השני מתחיל שילוב של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע ודבר זה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר חוויתי מסאג איורוודה באיכות כזאת, המעסה המקצועי אליי הביתה עם מגע כלכך מפנק שלא האמנתי שיכול להיות. ממליצה לכל אחד ואחת אשר מעוניינים ב עיסוי, מסאג' או סתם חוויה בלתי נשכחת באמצע השבוע על

The cyberspace has changed our world drastically over the past twenty classes. Not but has the internet spread out the world by letting instant communication, but it has opened up the world by charging the playing field for commerce. A mortal no more has to have a stock social movement or a commercial office to take part in the world of commerce. The cyberspace has allowed for many citizenries to build an cyberspace home based business.

Building an net home based business has got a popular means to run a home based business. The vantages of melting down a business online include having a large marketplace , many peoples that bring down that market and a very lower overhead price .

Another vantage of unravelling an net home based business is the semblance of having a big business. The internet can create is a false signified of reality. One somebody can course what looks like a large business, but is actually an net home based business.
