It is raining today which is very sad since my ducks will drown.
I bought 13 rubber ducks for a fundraiser for the Special Olympics. The 25,000+ rubber ducks are to be let out near the Brooklyn Bridge where they wil race each downstream to the South Street Seaport and there are prizes to be won. A million dollars, flight tickets, other goodies.
I bought the Quack Pack, where I got three extra ducks. I have been excited about this day at the races since I found the website (http://www.2006duckrace.kintera.org/) and bought the ducks. Besides the one in 25,000+ chance that I might win a million bucks, rubber ducks racing down the east river have captured my imagination and excitement. Well, the rain is definetly a downer on that parade but perhaps it will clear up.
Send my duckies good vibes. Will post photos soon.
ps. The UK YouGov poll made funs of Americans (which mostly, I do as well), but they have websites for luxury rubber ducks. check it out: http://www.justducks.co.uk/
