Plastic Ducks

The county fair is bustling this week. Wandering through the game booths, I came across these plastic ducks, floating round and round. It’s a variation of the "Go Fish" booth that I loved as a little kid. The realistically-painted fish of my childhood have been replaced by these candy-colored ducks. They jostled for a good position in the traffic jam at each bend in their tiny stream. I was mesmerized by the reflections in the water and on the metal. Their never-ending watery commute formed soft ripples of green. Who knew plastic ducks could be so engaging?
