Well you'll be pleased to hear that my bath was still relaxing, for the body; and my mind got carried away on a planet of bubbles. This is the result.
Take a moment to look at the ducks.
Really look at them.
At their faces.
Can you read their emotions?
I am struck by the differences in design of the humble rubber duck.
I think the design of the duck can really alter how you respond to it.
Some are open beaked; these seem more happy, chatty and somehow open to friendship.
Some, like the one at the very front, have a pouty expression which is slightly threatening.
Some others, like the heart ones, are maudalin almost; somehow sad and contemplative.
And then there's the sky gazer, the yellow duck at the back, who looks to be praying.
I have long known that teddy bears have distinct personalities, and I always spent time choosing the one at the shop that seemed "right". Well now I am wondering whether there is a rubber duck for each emotion, for each season, for each bath and it's important to pick the right one.
happy bath time.
