FFfAW 5-13-2015 The Quacker Family

Buster didn't want go swimming with a buncha sissies. He wanted to go explorin'.

“Mamma, Buster isn't in line! Buster, you better get back here or you're gonna be in a load of trouble!”

“Shut up Sissy! You ain't the boss a me.” Quacked Buster.

It isn't easy being the only boy in a family of girls. He didn't wanna do girl stuff, he wanted to do boy stuff. He wanted to explore. All the girls wanted to do was swim.

“I'm not being bossy I'm helpin' mamma!” Sissy quacked to her rebellious little brother.

Buster's mamma wanted her children all in a row but Buster clearly wasn't gonna listen.

Mamma stopped waddling and quacked at Buster, “Buster, get back in line right now! You are not old enough to go out alone!”

“Ahh mamma!….Quack quack quack quack…”

“Quack, quack…Told you so! Told you so! Quack, quack, quack…” Quacked Sissy.

  1. Suspenseful ending !!! I do hope he learns the lesson and is alright πŸ™‚ A very cute story PJ , animals stories are wonderful πŸ˜€

    • I was thinking about putting a coyote in one of those bushes but I ran out of words. LOL! His mother and sister saved his sweet little life. Haha Thanks for reading JR and I’m glad you enjoyed my little duckie tale.

  2. This reminds me of my nephew! We were so excited when we found out my sister was going to have a boy. I grew up with only sisters β€” and her first child is a girl. So yes, very excited. Now my nephew’s a lil man surrounded by girls. Good thing we all have a great balance of feminine and masculine traits or I’d feel bad for him lol.

    • Thank you Sonya. πŸ™‚ I want to apologize over that story again because I honestly don’t remember you using that ending. But my memory isn’t very good.

      • Oh, no, sorry, I meant it sounds familiar from the writing stories point of view, creating a character and then just killing it off again because it’s not working. Forgot to reply to your other comment…

  3. What a cute take on the prompt! Now, i have the great question? What are the girlie things and mancho things that ducks do as children???? Enjoyed!

  4. There is one in every family! Buster has to be the one heading in the other direction! I’ve seen it with sandpiper babies, and geese swimming.
    Great story! I really enjoyed it.

  5. Boys can be a hand full but sisters can be spiteful too. Good that duck mum looked after her ducklings. Duck mothers can be very don’t care birds! Love your story

  6. A real quacker of a story, PJ. I love the ducky language and the squabbling between siblings. Poor little Buster just wanted to do ‘boy things’! Love it! πŸ™‚

  7. I love it! What a great point of view. Life is hard for a little boy surrounded by bossy little girls. But he will make a great husband someday, ducks mate for life you know πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
