"You brought me out here to see this?"

It is a door; it leads to the forest of Wonderment where the trees of delight sway upon the warm breezes and the birds sing in harmony.

There’s no point in arguing with a duck so I opened the door. Suddenly, dozens of cockroaches, startled by the light, scampered away from their dank hiding place underneath.

The green-headed duck quacked happily and pounced. Within seconds, the bugs were all eaten.

I wondered what this said about my life.
