Today's #flashfiction The Overambitious Bird

 “It has a nutty flavor.”
Sigmund Freud* #quote

Remember that one in ten numbers are numbers and so is the other one. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Overambitious Bird

         A duck flew over the polar bears in the Arctic circle surrounding the North Pole. The bears weren't exactly sure what to think of such an animal. They'd never see it before. Was it food or predator? Certainly small enough to be food. But there instinct couldn't tell them whether or not the new animal was poison. They figured that maybe seals would still be the safest bet. When the bird landed the alpha polar bear spoke to it.
       “Who are you and where did you come from?”
The duck quacked merrily and responded, “My name is Tuck the Duck! Everybody in my flock says           I'm the hardest worker. So this year when we flew south for the winter I flew as far south as I could!”

        The polar bears in the Arctic around the North Pole couldn't decide whether to commend the duck's ambition or insult his stupidity.
