"That woman! My rubber duckies were not on the rim of the tub this morning. I looked in the cabinets and drawers. Nope.
"At breakfast I said, 'Tildy, do you know where my rubber duckies are?'
"'Yes,' she said. 'It is so silly for a grown man to keep rubber ducks in his tub. I gave them to the neighbor kids.'
"Can you believe it?" Herk fumed. "I know it is silly to keep rubber duckies in my tub. That's the point!"
