July 14, 2014 – I had on my headset today walking around the yard listening to music. I particularly like the song entitled, Happy. Can you imagine? Someone that I’ve never met wrote a brilliant and upbeat song about me? What an honor! When I got to the duck yard, Eustace asked me if he could hear what I was listening to, so I unplugged the ear buds. The ducks loved it and started swinging each other around like they were contestants in a square dance. After a few replays I bid the quacks adieu and continued on my walk. As I turned the corner by the smelly bush I heard Leisl remark, “That Happy is so chic, she has her own soundtrack to life!”
“Nothing wrong with that,” Merida added.
“Nothing wrong with that,” Eustace agreed before all three splashed into their pool and went about their everyday duck business.
I never thought about it before, but maybe there is a soundtrack to my life. After all, I do imagine a swell of orchestral music washing over the coop when I rise and stretch in the morning. I thought the same was true of everyone. No?
