When Ducks Attack

The other day I was walking out of my building and I saw a man carrying a Bible in one hand and a watermelon on his shoulder. As he walked, one of the rather corpulent ducks who have made the grounds of our high rise their home, approached and began to hiss at him.

I gave him and the duck a wide berth and we met up farther down the path.

"You scared?" he asked, smiling.

"Yes!" I said, and he laughed.

Perhaps carrying a Bible and a watermelon makes you invincible.
