Trudy stood by the pond remembering her Ugly Duckling days, comforted by the knowledge that one by one her nest mates had become duck soup.


  1. Sounds as Trudy really didn’t like be adopted at all. We both had a wicked mind this week. This was good.

  2. Ah, those ugly duckling days!! Or maybe beauty is only feather deep in this case!! Great way to start my day, Quilly!! Hope you have a great week!


  3. What a great take on the picture.
    I would have not thought of duck soup!
    Well done, Quilly!
    Have you a great week!

    1. Shakira — I pondered this one for several hours and even considered “Swan LAke” before I went with The Ugly Duckling.

  4. Finally, someone sticking it to those mean, old ducks! LOL! Heck, there wouldn’t be any “ugly ducklings” if it hadn’t been for those judgemental quackers handing out unsolicited “advice.” Love your today’s microfiction!
