Leona the Chicken Struts

Alphabe-Thurs weekly challenge: Letter Q!

Do chickens quack?

Of course not. They cluck.

But Marge heard quacking, and it was not Leona, who was strutting around in her new chicken outfit:

It was her daughter. Yaking at her again about how it wasn’t normal to keep a chicken in the house, let alone in diapers and now striped zippered outfits.

Marge thought about telling her it was actually quite normal. About the designer Honetschlaeger who actually had his own chicken clothing label. That there were even chicken fashion shoots!

Instead she told her: “You sound like a duck.”

That stopped her daughter’s quacking in its tracks. “A what?”

“You’re quacking like a duck. I just hear quacking.”

Her daughter got up to leave, rattling her key chain as she would when about to rush off. “Well, maybe that’s what I’ll find next. A duck in your bathtub.”

The tub. The guest bath, she never used it….she would have to Google it. Duck outfits.
