Anyone who would like a small but cheerful duck, just send me your mailing address. The large one can be purchased at Amazon or similar places:

I should warn you that I'll be traveling this holiday season, but if you send me your local address, I think a duck could be dropped off for you.

whoops. I accidentally deleted one of the terms. (I didn't know what the little red [x] did, so I clicked on it, and a term disappeared.)

I especially appreciate how inflating the duck after getting on the bus made it evident you were making this more difficult for no obvious reason, and how giving out little ducks made the whole thing participatory silliness and further brightened folks' day. yay.

I can't actually decide if it would have been easier or harder to bring the duck pre-inflated, but I did think that inflating it during the trip would be more entertaining. We were trying to estimate how many puffs it would take to reach inflation, but I don't think anyone tried to count.

Seriously, I have a lot of small ducks. Anyone who sends me their address and a duck request will get a duck in the mail.

Beware. If you order ducks, make sure you have the storage space.
