the magic ducky


this is the duck handle on the inside of one of the bathroom stalls at palatte. it has become sort of famous with my kids. a trip to palatte is not complete without a visit to the bathroom to visit the duck. lucy, in particular, is kind of obsessed with it. she usually wants to go into the stall all by herself while i wait outside. yesterday, we all ended up in the stall together and lucy said to finn, "finny, look at the magic ducky." magic? what does she do in here when she is by herself? i couldn't help but ask her to elaborate. "he's a magic ducky?" i asked. "yup," was the simple response i got. ok. so i asked, "what makes him magic?" to which lucy gave me this answer (word-for-word), "he can abracadabra the bathroom door away and then wrap himself in toilet paper and turn it into clothes (i think this referred to turning the toilet paper into clothes, but i am not quite sure) and then he does tricky things around the restaurant." huh? oooookkaaaay....
